    the victorious, Name, and the runner-up, Name

    Hi teachers,

    Is "the victorious, Name, and the runner-up, Name, were awarded with some cash prize" correct?

    Thanks.

    "The winner" would be better. Or also, if less common, "The victor": http://www.macmillandictionary.com/d...british/victor.

    There's no need for a preposition with awarded- they were awarded cash prizes.
