(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Hoosier students who are interested in state government are encouraged to participate in the Indiana House Page during the 2020 legislative session.

State Representative Jim Lucas released yesterday that students between the ages of 13 to 18 can spend the day at the Statehouse in Indianapolis.

While there the students assist house legislators and staff, they will also get the chance to tour the governor’s office, the Indiana Supreme Court and Senate chambers.

“This is an opportunity to witness the legislative process in person, including debates on various proposals for new laws,” says Lucas.

With limited space, available students are encouraged to apply soon.

“The page program is a great learning experience for students as they spend a day in our historic Statehouse, any student fascinated with government and history should take part in this program,” said Lucas.

Opportunities to serve as a page include Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays during the legislative session, which concludes March 14.
