INDIANAPOLIS — State Rep. Jack Lutz, R-Anderson, is encouraging local students to apply for the Indiana House Page Program. The program offers students ages 13 to 18 the chance to visit the Statehouse and see an entire day of legislative activity.
“The page program provides students a wonderful occasion to see the Statehouse and the legislative process up close,” Lutz said in a press release. “I highly encourage young people from our community to sign up for this unique opportunity.”
Pages will receive a tour of the capitol, including the governor’s office, the House and Senate chambers and the Indiana Supreme Court. They will be able to watch activity on the House floor, as well as personally assist members of the legislative staff.
Students are excused from school for the day they serve, and are responsible for their own transportation.
Pages are asked to include two different dates when they can come to the Statehouse between January and mid-March. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays are the best days to serve because that is when the House is in session. There are no pages on Fridays. To sign up, visit http://www.in.gov/legislative/house_republicans/off_cms/page.html or call 1-800-382-9841.
