STATEHOUSE — State Rep. Tim Brown (R-Crawfordsville) encourages Hoosier students interested in state government to participate in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2020 legislative session.
Brown said students ages 13 to 18 can spend a day at the Statehouse in Indianapolis assisting House legislators and staff, watching debate, and touring the governor’s office, the Indiana Supreme Court, and the House and Senate chambers.
“Paging is a fun and exciting way to learn more about the legislative process,” Brown said. “Younger generations need to be exposed to the democratic system, especially since they are our future leaders. I hope to welcome many local students to the Statehouse this session.”
According to Brown, student pages receive an excused absence from school and groups can participate together.
He said students are responsible for their own lunch expenses and transportation to and from the Statehouse. Opportunities to serve as a page include Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during the legislative session, which kicked off Jan. 6 and must conclude by March 14.
