STATEHOUSE (Dec. 21, 2016) — Applications are now open for students interested in participating in the Indiana House Page Program, according to State Rep. Alan Morrison (R-Terre Haute).
While at the Statehouse, House pages spend the day touring the House and Senate chambers, the Indiana Supreme Court and governor’s office. They also observe the legislative session directly from the floor of the House, listening to debates on important policy issues.
“Every year, I look forward to seeing students from my district at the Statehouse, where they get a behind-the-scenes look at how laws are made at the state level,” Morrison said. “This unique opportunity gives those who participate the chance to experience government firsthand.”
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. Morrison said student pages receive an excused absence from school.
Morrison also said the 2017 session begins on Jan. 4, and page positions fill quickly. 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.
State Rep. Alan Morrison (R-Terre Haute) represents House District 42, which includes all of Vermillion County and portions of Clay, Fountain, Parke, Vigo and Warren counties.
