STATEHOUSE (Jan. 2, 2019) – State Rep. Stephen Bartels (R-Eckerty) encourages students who want to learn more about state government to participate in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2019 legislative session.

According to Bartels, those who are between the ages of 13 to 18 can spend a day at the Statehouse in Indianapolis helping staff and local legislators, touring government offices, and learning about the legislative process.

“Experiencing state government in action is an exciting and educational opportunity for Hoosier students,” Bartels said. “Pages get to visit the Statehouse, watch the legislative session and help lawmakers with tasks on the House floor. I encourage interested students in our community to sign up for this program.”

Bartels said student pages receive an excused absence from school and groups can participate together. For more information and to sign up, visit or call 800-382-9841.

The 2019 legislative session begins Thursday, Jan. 3, and must conclude by April 30.


State Rep. Stephen Bartels (R-Eckerty) represents House District 74, which

includes portions of Spencer, Dubois, Perry, Crawford and Orange counties.
