STATEHOUSE (Dec. 9, 2019) — The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2020 Senate Page Program, said State Sen. Michael Crider (R-Greenfield).
Through the full-day program, students in grades six through 12 can tour Indiana’s Statehouse, listen to debates and help staff with age-appropriate tasks. Students also have the opportunity to meet with their state senator.
“I strongly encourage all eligible students to consider paging for the Senate,” Crider said. “The Senate Page Program puts what students are taught in the classroom into action and provides them with firsthand experience on how government works at the state level.”
The Senate Page Program will begin in January and run through early March. Positions fill quickly, so it is important to apply early. 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.
