Applications are open for students interested in participating in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2018 legislative session, according to State Rep. Kathy Kreag Richardson (R-Noblesville).
Pages have an opportunity to join Richardson during the legislative session and tour the governor’s office, the Indiana Supreme Court and the House and Senate chambers.
“Serving as a page is a great opportunity for students to explore the Statehouse and learn about government,” Richardson said. “The program really helps young people better understand the state legislature and how it works. Each session, I really look forward to meeting with students from our community.”
To be a page, applicants should be between the ages of 13 and 18. Richardson said student pages receive an excused absence from school and groups can sign up to participate together.
The 2018 legislative session began Wednesday, Jan. 3, and must conclude by March 14. Richardson said page positions fill quickly and encouraged participants to apply early online at indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram or by calling 800-382-9841.
