The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2020 Senate Page Program.
Through the full-day program, students in grades six through 12 can tour Indiana’s Statehouse, listen to debates and help staff with age-appropriate tasks. Students also have the opportunity to meet with their state senator.
“We always have a number of students from District 48 serve as Senate pages and I hope to see just as many this coming session,” State Sen. Mark Messmer (R-Jasper) said. “Indianapolis may seem far away, but the legislation that is written, discussed and passed at the Statehouse directly impacts our community. The Senate Page Program is a great opportunity for young Hoosiers to see this in person.”
The Senate Page Program will begin in January and run through early March. Positions fill quickly, so it is important to apply early. Pages are scheduled for Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during the legislative session. They begin their day at 8:30 a.m. and are dismissed at 3:30 p.m. Groups serve together on Wednesdays. Serving as a page is considered an excused absence from school.
