Rep. Baird invites students to the Statehouse

STATEHOUSE (Dec. 28, 2017) — Applications are open for students interested in participating in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2018 legislative session, according to State Rep. Jim Baird (R-Greencastle).

 

Pages have an opportunity to join Baird during the legislative session and tour the governor’s office, the Indiana Supreme Court, and the House and Senate chambers.

 

“The House page program is a wonderful educational opportunity offered at the Statehouse, and I look forward to the students visiting each session,” Baird said. “I enjoy getting to know the pages from our community as they learn how state government works.”

 

To be a page, applicants should be between the ages of 13 and 18. Baird said student pages receive an excused absence from school and groups can sign up to participate together.

 

The 2018 legislative session begins Wednesday, Jan. 3, and must conclude by March 14.

 

Baird said page positions fill quickly and encouraged participants to apply early online at www.indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram or by calling 800-382-9841.
