STATEHOUSE (Dec. 1, 2022) — The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2023 Senate Page Program, said State Sen. Linda Rogers (R-Granger).
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.
“The Senate Page Program is a great way to introduce students to the opportunities available when they actively participate in their civic duties at a local and state level," Rogers said. "The firsthand experience in state government can help a student's interest to grow, and even gives a preview toward how their participation can translate to jobs in the future through our staff and internship program. I hope those eligible in Senate District 11 apply to the program."
In recent years, Rogers has welcomed homeschooled students, as well as students from Discovery Middle School in Granger, LaVille Elementary School in Lakeville, The Montessori Academy Edison Lakes in Mishawaka, Penn High School in Mishawaka, and Trinity School at Greenlawn in South Bend.
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.
