Applications available for Indiana Senate Page Program

The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2022 Senate Page Program, said State Sen. Vaneta Becker (R-Evansville).

The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2022 Senate Page Program, said State Sen. Vaneta Becker (R-Evansville).

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.

“Visiting the Statehouse is an incredible experience," Becker said. "Students witness the many aspects of the legislative process and gain valuable knowledge on how state government is run. Even though it's a bit of a drive, I think it’s an opportunity all students should take advantage of and hope to welcome local students to the Statehouse this session."

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.
