    Default Apostrophes

    I have devised a receipt which will be given to our customers. There will be many people receiving these receipts at the same time. The receipts are ours and are called "WINNERS RECEIPTS" Should there be an apostrophe and where should it be placed? also if you could tell me why I would appreciate it.

    I believe it should be Winners' receipts.

    it's like with singular nouns, but with plural nouns there is no -s after the apostrophe, the english language being so weird.
