STATEHOUSE (Dec. 6, 2019) — The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2020 Senate Page Program, said State Sen. Ron Grooms (R-Jeffersonville).
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 encourage any student in our area to consider participating in the Senate Page Program, especially if they’re interested in a career in public service,” Grooms said. “This unique experience allows young Hoosiers to get an up-close look at their state legislature directly from the Senate floor.”
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.
