Illinois Marching Online has recognized two area school bands as making the Top 10 in their Bands of the Year categories.

The Newton Marching Eagles earned sixth place honors while the Effingham Marching Hearts snared 10th place honors in Division 3, the division made up of schools with enrollments of from 450 to 899 students.

This year's voting was done by Illinois Marching Online staff members, as well as band directors, staff members and judges from across the state.  Also this year, users of the website had input into the Bands of the Year as well.
