INDIANAPOLIS — Students ages 13 to 18 are encouraged to apply for the Indiana House Page Program, meant to offer participants a chance to visit the Indiana Statehouse and see the legislature in action.
“Each year, one of the most important aspects of the legislative session is being able to give young Hoosiers a first-hand look at the mechanics of the General Assembly,” Indiana Rep. Tim Neese, R-Elkhart, said in a statement. “I like to see students getting involved in state government at such a young age, asking questions and hearing their comments.”
Participants, who are responsible for their transport to Indianapolis, tour state government locations, see floor sessions and help staffers. The program goes from the first week in January through mid-March.
