Student Day

Student Day at the Legislature

An extended learning opportunity for Indiana youth grades 6-12, this Day at the Legislature brings classroom learning to life in our state’s capitol building, and affords youth leaders interactive, experiential application of policy in the making. This program affords students a vehicle for experiencing first-hand the legislative intricacies of policy and decision-making in our state government. Students will have the opportunity to tour the statehouse, hear from elected officials from different branches of Indiana government, and debate a current bill with their peers.
