Statehouse to host page program for students

INDIANAPOLIS — State Sen. Michael Crider announced the Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for its annual page program.

This full-day interactive program gives students in sixth through 12th grades 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.

“Serving as a Senate page is a great fit for students interested in state government,” Crider said. “Our program offers an opportunity for students to see how Indiana operates and to interact with their state lawmakers. I look forward to meeting students from Senate District 28 this session.”

The 2017 Senate Page Program will run from Jan. 23 through mid-April. Positions fill quickly. 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 on Wednesdays. Serving as a page is considered an excused absence from school.
