Sen. Becker: Indiana Senate Accepting Student Page Requests



 STATEHOUSE (Jan. 3, 2014) — State Sen. Vaneta Becker (R-Evansville) invites students in grades six through 12 to serve as Senate pages during the Indiana General Assembly’s 2014 legislative session.


The Indiana Senate Page Program is now accepting applications for student pages, offering an up-close, behind-the-scenes look at the General Assembly. During the one-day program, participants tour the Statehouse, meet and interact with their senator and watch debates in the Senate Chamber.


“Participating in our democracy is one of our most important duties as citizens, and the page program is a chance for young Hoosiers to get involved in their state government,” Becker said. “Senate pages will learn about how laws are made in Indiana and see the legislative process in action. It’s a great opportunity for students of all ages.”


The program runs from January to early March, and students may serve as pages on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays. Space is limited, so applicants should submit their materials as soon as possible.


Students can apply online at or send a letter to their senator. Letters can be addressed to Sen. Vaneta Becker, c/o Indiana Senate, State of Indiana, 200 W. Washington St., Indianapolis, IN 46204. All requests must include:


  • Student’s name
  • Address
  • Home telephone number
  • Age
  • School affiliation or home-school status

Orientation for pages begins at 8:30 a.m., and pages are dismissed at 3:30 p.m. Students will take a break for lunch prior to the Senate floor session at 1:30 p.m. This is considered an excused absence from school. For more information about the page program, call 800-382-9467.



  1. I’m sorry to bother you, but recently I started remembering some things from my youth, one of which is that I believe I was a Page for a day in the Indiana Senate or House, possibly between 1959-1963. Do you know where I might find records of that to confirm it? FYI: It’s not “critical” that I get this information, just would be nice to know.
