The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2024Senate Page Program, said State Sen. Brian Buchanan (R-Lebanon).
Through the full-day program, students in grades six through 12 tour Indiana’s Statehouse, listen to debates and help staff with age-appropriate tasks. Students also have the opportunity to meet their state senator.
“I always enjoy meeting students from Senate District 7, especially during the legislative session,” Buchanan said. “The Senate Page Program gives young Hoosiers an opportunity to get an up-close view of the legislative process and learn about state government. I encourage any student interested to apply for this great opportunity.”
The Senate Page Program will begin in January and run through February. 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. Positions fill quickly, so it is important to apply early.
