DES MOINES, Iowa - A group of 20 workers at the Quaker Oats plant in Cedar Rapids have stepped forward as winners of a $241 million Powerball jackpot.

Lottery spokeswoman Mary Neubauer says one of the workers bought the winning ticket for the group for the June 13 drawing and the winnings will be split 20 ways.

Dan Morris, a spokesman for the winners, declined to give their names but says they range between 35 and 64 years old and work in the shipping department.

The group took a chartered bus Wednesday from Cedar Rapids to Des Moines to present the ticket to lottery officials.

The jackpot is the 15th largest won by Powerball players.

Lottery officials plan a news conference Wednesday afternoon.
