State Rep. Lorissa Sweet (R-Wabash) invites local students to spend a day serving as a House page at the Indiana Statehouse during the 2023 legislative session.
According to Sweet, Hoosier students ages 13 to 18 can sign up to page, and assist lawmakers and staff with daily duties while touring the governor's office, the Indiana Supreme Court, and House and Senate chambers.
"Pages visiting the Statehouse will be able to witness the legislative session and experience all the excitement that comes with session," Sweet said.
"Students are able to learn while interacting with their peers, House staff and lawmakers."
Sweet said pages will receive an excused absence from school and can participate in groups, such as Girl Scouts troops.
Hoosiers can visit indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram or call 1-800-382-9841 to sign up their student to participate.
Opportunities to page are available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout session, which must conclude by the end of April.
Students are responsible for their lunch, and transportation to and from the Statehouse.
