Hoosier students are invited to spend a day at the Indiana Statehouse.

The Indiana House Page Program provides a unique hands-on experience, helping students learn how state laws are made while inspiring the next generation of leaders to get involved in public service. To be a page, applicants should be between the ages of 13 and 18, which is typically grades six through 12.

Students participating in this interactive, educational experience receive an excused absence from school. While at the Statehouse, House pages tour historical sites like the House and Senate chambers, the Indiana Supreme Court and the governor’s office. They have the opportunity to meet their state representative and observe the legislative session in the House chamber, where they can listen to debates on important policy issues. Pages are also assigned age-appropriate tasks like delivering important messages and sorting files.

House pages are scheduled to visit on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays for the duration of the legislative session, which begins Jan. 3 and concludes by April 30. Large groups and clubs can be scheduled to page together, typically on Wednesdays. If you would like to schedule participating siblings and friends together, please be sure to note that preference when signing up.
