STATEHOUSE (Dec. 21, 2016) — Applications are now open for students interested in participating in the Indiana House Page Program, according to State Rep. Denny Zent (R-Angola).
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.
“Participating in the page program is a unique opportunity for students who want to learn more about the legislative process,” Zent said. “Pages will be able to help me in the House Chamber and tour other government offices. I encourage all young Hoosiers to apply.”
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. Zent said student pages receive an excused absence from school.
Zent 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. Denny Zent (R-Angola) represents House District 51, which
includes most of LaGrange and Steuben counties.
