(INDIANAPOLIS) - State Rep. Eric Koch, R-Bedford, is offering opportunities for area students who are interested in serving as single-day pages in the Indiana House of Representatives.

By serving as a House page, students are given the opportunity to view and participate in the day-to-day activities of the General Assembly.

Koch serves in House leadership as assistant Republican Caucus chairman and serves as chairman of the House Elections & Apportionment Committee. Selected students will spend most of the day in the House chamber assisting Koch.

The day's work involves responding to representatives' requests, delivering messages and running errands. Pages also receive a tour of the Statehouse, including the governor's office and the chambers of the Indiana House, Senate and Supreme Court.

"Our legislative page program is an excellent opportunity for students to view state government in action," Koch was quoted as saying in a press release. "I enjoy visiting with the students when they are here, and the experience may even inspire them to run for office someday."

Pages should be between 13 and 18 years old. The House Student Services Office will try to meet requests for specific dates. Students will be excused from school for the day.

Students will also need to arrange for transportation to and from the Statehouse.
Availability is limited, so students should apply as soon as possible, the press release stated. The session begins on Jan. 4 and ends on March 14. Those interested in serving as a page for the House can apply online at http://www.in.gov/legislative/house_republicans/off_cms/page.html.
