Zay announces Indiana Senate taking page applications for 2019

The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2019 Senate Page Program, said State Sen. Andy Zay (R-Huntington).

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.

“The Senate Page Program enhances a student’s education by providing an additional way to learn about Indiana’s government,” Zay said. “Classroom time is vital to young Hoosiers, but getting the chance to meet with legislators and witness the legislative process firsthand is a wonderful learning opportunity. I encourage the students in our community to apply to serve as a page, and look forward to welcoming them to the Statehouse during the upcoming session.”

The Senate Page Program will begin in January and run through mid-April. 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.
