Zay announces state senate now accepting applications for pages

State Sen. Andy Zay (R-Huntington) has announced the Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the Senate Page Program.

This full-day interactive program gives students in grades six through 12 the opportunity to tour the Indiana Statehouse, observe session debates on the Senate floor and assist staff with age-appropriate tasks. Students will also meet with their state senator.

“The page program allows students to get an up-close look at their state legislature,” Zay said. “I encourage students in the community to consider paging at the Senate, as it is a great way to learn about Indiana’s government.”

The 2018 Senate Page Program will run from mid-January through early March. Positions fill quickly, so it is important to sign up early. Pages are scheduled for Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during the legislative session starting at 8:30 a.m. and dismissing at 3:30 p.m. Groups serve together on Wednesdays. Serving as a page is considered an excused absence from school.
