STATEHOUSE — The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2022 Senate Page Program, said State Sen. Eric Koch (R-Bedford).
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 senators.
“The Senate Page Program is a unique opportunity that allows students to get firsthand experience with how the Indiana General Assembly operates,” Koch said. “It is encouraging to see young Hoosiers at the Statehouse engaging in state government, and I urge any interested students to sign up for this enriching experience.”
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.
