Kruse invites applications from students for day at state capitol!

Local students in grades 6-12 can submit requests to serve as pages with the office of state Sen. Dennis Kruse, R-Auburn, at the Statehouse during the Indiana General Assembly’s 2015 legislative session.

“The Senate Page Program exposes students to how state government operates,” Kruse said. “It also provides an opportunity to not only tour the Statehouse, but to interact with state lawmakers, observe debates and witness votes on important issues. Students interested in state government or public service should consider applying.”

Serving as a page is considered an excused absence from school. The day begins with orientation at 8:30 a.m., and pages are dismissed at 3:30 p.m. Students break for lunch prior to the Senate session.

The program runs from January through April. Students may serve as pages on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays. Groups serve together on Wednesdays. Due to limited space, applicants need to submit materials as soon as possible.
Students can apply online at www.IndianaSenateRepublicans.com/page-program or send a letter to State Sen. Dennis Kruse, 200 W. Washington St., Indianapolis, IN 46204.

Applications must include the student’s name, address, home telephone number, age and school affiliation or home-school status.

After applications are processed, students receive confirmation of their scheduled dates to serve.
