Members of the council are chosen through an appointment process. The council meets three to six times each year in Indianapolis. Students on the council will be paid for their attendance and will receive excused absences from school if a meeting should conflict.
Interested students should submit name, address, phone number and a brief statement regarding their interest in serving on the council to Senator Steele by email at Senator.Steele@iga.in.gov or by mail to Steele at 200 W. Washington St., Indianapolis, IN 46204.
