State Senator Ryan Mishler a Republican from Bremen announced Tuesday that the Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the Page Program.
This full-day interactive program gives students in grades six through 12 the opportunity to tour the Indiana Statehouse, observe session debates on the Senate floor, and assist staff with age-appropriate tasks. Students will also meet with their state senator.
“The Page Program provides a valuable experience for students looking to see how state government works,” Mishler said. “I hope this opportunity will inspire students to get involved in serving their communities.”
The 2017 Senate Page Program will run from Jan. 23 through mid-April. Positions fill quickly, so it is important to sign up early. Pages are scheduled for Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays during the legislative session starting at 8:30 a.m. and dismissing at 3:30 p.m. Groups serve together on Wednesdays. Serving as a page is considered an excused absence from school.
