SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Two big winners in the Wendy's High School Heisman competition are being celebrated.  

Both Anna Newton from Bulloch County and Ryan Day from Saint Helena Island were honored Tuesday at Wendy's in Pooler.

They are among 20 state finalists, 10 from each gender, in Georgia. They are hoping to be selected as the national finalist from the state to be considered for the national award.

"It's a great honor, I know a lot of people have applied and it's really humbling to have been picked." said Newton, a finalist in the girls competition.

Wendy's founder Dave Thomas created the award in 1994 to honor student athletes who excel in academics, athletics, and community involvement.
