Application now available for Indiana Senate Page Program

State Senators Sue Glick (R-LaGrange) and Dennis Kruse (R-Auburn) have announced the Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the Senate Page Program.

This full-day interactive program gives students in grades 6-12 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.

“The page program allows students an opportunity to learn more about their state legislature,” Glick said. “The Senate encourages students in the community to consider this opportunity to get an up-close look at how state government works.”

Kruse echoed Glick’s remarks.

“The page program is a great way students can get involved in state government,” Kruse stated. “I hope students take advantage of this civic initiative to engage with their state legislature.”

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.
