Page program accepting applications

The Indiana Senate is accepting applications for the Senate Page Program.

The full-day, interactive program gives students in Grades 6 to 12 the opportunity to tour the Indiana Statehouse, observe session debates on the Senate floor and assist staff with age-appropriate tasks. Students will also meet with their state senator.

“I encourage students in our area to consider taking part in the page program,” said state Sen. Eric Koch, R-Bedford, the District 44 representative who serves all or parts of Bartholomew, Jackson, Brown, Lawrence and Monroe counties. “It allows them to get an up-close look at their state Legislature and may spark an interest in civic engagement that lasts a lifetime.”

The 2018 Senate Page Program will runs from mid-January through early March. Pages are scheduled for Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during the legislative session starting at 8:30 a.m. and dismissing at 3:30 p.m. Groups serve together Wednesdays. Serving as a page is considered an excused absence from school.
