Dernulc: Applications available for Indiana Senate Page Program

STATEHOUSE (Dec. 1, 2022) — The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2023 Senate Page Program, said State Sen. Dan Dernulc (R-Highland).

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.

“It is an honor for me to share my knowledge of government and the legislative process with the next generation of young Hoosiers," Dernulc said. "I look forward to meeting the students from our district who have the opportunity to participate in the Senate Page Program."

The Senate Page Program will begin in January and run through early April. 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.
