Ford: 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. Jon Ford (R-Terre Haute).

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.

"Each legislative session, I enjoy being able to welcome students to the Statehouse," Ford said. "The Senate Page Program is a great way for local children to learn how state government operates and how it impacts their day-to-day lives. I encourage those interested to apply."

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.
