    Right sentence?

    Re: Who received the award will be posted on the internet.

    Is this sentence correct?
    I think 'Who' should be replaced by 'Whoever'.

    Am I correct?

    It should read:

    Who(ever) receives the award, their name will be posted on the Internet.

    Re: Right sentence?

    First of all,
    thank you, sir.

    But I'd like to know when 'WHOEVER' is compatible with 'WHO'.
    It's very strange to me.
    I know 'Who' is used for 'whom'.

    Thanks again.

    Re: Right sentence?

    I find the word 'whoever' a bit awkward and would avoid using it if there are
    better choices of words.

    The name of the recipient of the award will be posted on the internet.

    If it is meant to be a title(since you put eh 'Re:' in front), then it is too long.

    not a teacher
