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.

 A 15-year-old boy, seen sitting on a stretcher center, who stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from San Jose, Calif., to Maui is loaded into an ambulance at Kahului Airport in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii Sunday afternoon, April 20, 2014. The boy survived the trip halfway across the Pacific Ocean unharmed despite frigid temperatures at 38,000 feet and a lack of oxygen, FBI and airline officials said. FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu told The Associated Press on Sunday night that the boy was questioned by the FBI after being discovered on the tarmac at the Maui airport with no identification.
