 MSHSL Staff Contact: Chris Franson - Assistant Director
 Participation Limitations:
    Board Policy: Eligibility for Participation in State-Section Contest/Festivals. The Composition of major (large group) high school performing groups shall include grades 10-12.
The MSHSL requires large performance groups to be made up of primarily 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students. 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students are eligible to participate with these performance groups. Ninth grade choirs, band and orchestras are not eligible to be involved as large performing groups. 7th and 8th grade students are not eligible for solo or ensemble performances, however; 9th grade students are eligible for solo/ensemble performance if they are a member of that school's high school student population and are a member of one of that high school's major performing groups which includes grades 10-12.
The eligibility of all contestants shall be certified by a general statement from the superintendent or high school principal to the manager of the contest.
 Sub-Sections begin: To be determined by Region Committee
 Last Day to hold Section Tournaments: To be determined by Region Committee

Rule Highlights for 2013-14:
    1. There shall be three (3) categories, i.e., I-II-III for contest performance. Each major group (Events 1-5) must perform a minimum of one selection from the Approved Minnesota Contest/Festival Music List. (Refer to 103.04) THIS SELECTION DETERMINES THE CATEGORY IN WHICH THE GROUP PERFORMS.
   2. The three categories; i.e., I-II-III, shall apply to major groups (Events 1-5), but not to solo and ensemble entries (Events 10-70).
   3. 7th, 8th and 9th grade students are eligible to compete in state-section contest/festivals only if they are members of a major high school group which includes grades 10, 11 or 12. Students meeting the qualifications may also:
      A. students meeting these qualifications may also participate in small ensembles providing the ensemble is not composed exclusively of students below the 10th grade.
      B. enter solo events if they are in the ninth grade.
