Press release by State Sen. Chip Perfect (R-Lawrenceburg)

(Indianapolis, Ind.) – State Sen. Chip Perfect (R-Lawrenceburg) announced the Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the Senate Page Program.

This full-day interactive program gives students in grades six through 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.

“Paging at the Senate is such a valuable experience for students,” Perfect said. “I highly encourage those interested to participate and come to the Statehouse to learn all about state government and the legislative process.”

The 2018 Senate Page Program will run from mid-January through early March. 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.
