STATEHOUSE — The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2020 Senate Page Program, said State Sen. Stacey Donato (R-Logansport).
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.
“I want to hear from students in our community about ways we can work to improve their education,” Donato said. “The Indiana Senate Page Program builds off of classroom instruction and provides students with firsthand knowledge about how our state government operates. I hope local students will take advantage of this unique opportunity.”
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.
