State Sen. Brandt Hershman (R-Buck Creek) announced the Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the Senate Page Program.
This full-day interactive program gives students in grades six through 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.
“Paging at the Senate is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn about Indiana’s government,” Hershman said. “I encourage all interested students to apply, as learning about the legislature might spark an interest in state government.”
The 2018 Senate Page Program will run from mid-January through early March. Positions fill quickly, so it is important to sign up early. 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.
