Tomes: Applications available for Indiana Senate Page Program

STATEHOUSE (Dec. 2, 2022) — The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2023 Senate Page Program, said State Sen. Jim Tomes (R-Wadesville).

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.

"I always appreciate welcoming the young Hoosiers who make the trip to Indianapolis to learn about their state government and how the legislative process operates firsthand," Tomes said. "The Senate Page Program is a great opportunity for students to see how a bill moves through the legislative process, and I encourage all those interested in our area to consider paging with the Senate this session."

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.
