Garten: Applications available for Indiana Senate Page Program

STATEHOUSE (Dec. 11, 2019) — The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2020 Senate Page Program, said State Sen. Chris Garten (R-Charlestown).

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.

“The Senate Page Program is a great opportunity for students in our area to see firsthand how bills become laws,” Garten said. “I encourage all interested students to consider participating in this unique experience and learn more about their state government.”

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.
