Allow Illinois's freshmen to audition for All-State music ensembles

This petition had 24 supporters

Illinois's freshmen are not allowed to audition for All-State orchestra, choir, or band. This is an absurd rule that uses age as a qualifier for musical talent. Illinois has many talented freshmen that are not able to experience All-State because of this restriction. 

With this change, Illinois and IMEA will be more encouraging to young musicians around the state.
