Adding non HS EC's on to resume?

<p>I was wondering if i could include my music achievements (all county, long island festival) on to my resume even tho they were mostly during my middle school years? </p>

<p>Would this look like I'm trying too hard to impress and just a futile choice to include this?</p>

<p>Definitely include the activities you engage in outside the classroom but make certain it's not a laundry list. Rather, select the ones to show your most important interests.</p>

<p>Even though they were during middle school i did put a tremendous amount of time and effort in order to be invited to those.</p>
