Winner: Best Local Celebrity 2017
Winner: Carson Wentz
Carson Wentz has been calling Philadelphia home for the past two years, but North Dakotans still proudly claim him as their own. Though this star is on the rise in the NFL—copies of his jersey have been the most sold this year—the Bismarck, N.D., native's attitude has remained grounded. Instead of making headlines for dating a Kardashian, he was the subject of a moving ESPN special about his bond with a sick fan.
