Page program applications now available, Bray says
District 37 State Sen. Rodric Bray (R-Martinsville) has announced that the Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the page program.
This full-day interactive program gives students in grades 6-12 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 is a great way for students to see how the legislative process works firsthand,” Bray said. “This opportunity also allows students to meet their legislators and listen to debates on the issues facing our state.”
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.
