INDIANAPOLIS – Evan Lamping, a homeschooled sophomore from Greensburg, recently served as an Indiana House Page for District 55 Rep. Cindy Ziemke (R-Batesville) during the 2014 session of the Indiana General Assembly. The House offers an unparalleled opportunity for students between the ages of 13 and 18 to visit the Statehouse and experience a full day of legislative activity.
Pages are able to see how the state legislature works firsthand in a behind-the-scenes tour. They work alongside legislators, legislative assistants and interns. On session days, pages experience how a bill becomes a law as they watch legislators on the House floor debate issues. Students also have the chance to tour the statehouse, see where the Governor works and observe floor sessions of the House, Senate and Supreme Court chambers.
The Indiana House Page Program is an educational way for students to gain a better understanding of the lawmaking process by meeting their State Representative and witnessing how laws are made firsthand. It is an exciting experience that comes highly recommended. For more information, call 317-232-9887.
