State Representatives Jack Jordan (R-Bremen) and Jake Teshka (R-North Liberty) invite Hoosier students to sign up and experience a day serving as a House page at the Indiana Statehouse during the 2024 legislative session.
According to Jordan, Hoosier students ages 13 to 18 can sign up to be a House page and assist state lawmakers and Statehouse staff with daily duties while having the opportunity to tour the governor’s office, the Supreme Court, and House and Senate chambers.
“I encourage young Hoosiers from our area to participate in the page program,” Jordan said. “Students get a hands-on experience and can expand on what they are learning in school.
Teshka said that student pages will receive an excused absence from school and that groups of students may participate together.
“Lawmakers enjoy it when young Hoosiers come to the Statehouse and ask questions about the legislative process,” Teshka said. “The page program helps students learn more about our state government and our history.”
Interested Hoosier students or parents can visit indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram to fill out the online application and select a day to participate during the 2024 legislative session, which began Jan. 8 and must conclude by March 14. Individual page opportunities will be on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. To schedule a large group, please reach out to the page program by calling 317-232-9410 or emailing email@example.com. Large groups will be scheduled for Wednesdays only.
Students will be responsible for their lunch along with transportation to and from the Statehouse located in downtown Indianapolis.
