STATEHOUSE (Jan. 12, 2017) — Applications are now open for students interested in participating in the Indiana House Page Program, according to State Rep. Matt Lehman (R-Berne).
While at the Statehouse, House pages spend the day touring the House and Senate chambers, the Indiana Supreme Court and governor’s office. Pages also observe the legislative session directly from the floor of the House, listening to debates on important policy issues.
“The page program is such a unique opportunity for students,” Lehman said. “Pages get an up-close look at how laws are made in Indiana and learn more about the roles of their elected officials.”
Pages are also assigned age-appropriate tasks like delivering important messages and sorting files. To be a page, applicants should be between the ages of 13 and 18, which is typically grades 6-12. Lehman said student pages receive an excused absence from school.
To apply, visit www.indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram or call 800-382-9841.
Those students who wish to page together should note that on their individual applications. House pages are scheduled for Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Large groups like Boys and Girls Scout Clubs may be scheduled to page on Wednesdays.
Rep. Matt Lehman (R-Berne) represents House District 79, which includes all of Adams County and portions of Allen and Wells counties.
