INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2020 Senate Page Program, said State Sen. Ryan Mishler (R-Bremen).
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, said a news release from State Sen. Mishler’s office.
“Each session, I always enjoy meeting with students from our community and discussing the role of a state legislator,” Mishler said. “I encourage young Hoosiers from Senate District 9 to consider serving as a Senate page and learning more about our state’s 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, said the news release.
