Amy Schneider was given her own official day in Oakland, California.
Earlier this week, Oakland, California, celebrated its first official Amy Schneider Day in honor of the Jeopardy champion who made history with her 40-game winning streak on the quiz show last year.
According to a new report from Them, Schneider's home of Oakland—a Bay Area city with a large LGBTQ+ community—officially declared Sept. 7 as Amy Schneider Day.
Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf tweeted in honor of the occasion on Wednesday, declaring that Schneider, 43, has "made our city proud" as the "winningest woman and second-longest winning streak ever" on Jeopardy. (Schaaf also called Schneider the first trans contest on the game show, a distinction that actually belongs to Kate Freeman, per Them.)
But Schneider did make history as the first transgender competitor in the quiz show's Tournament of Champions, which features only the best of the best Jeopardy winners.
"Amy doesn't just say she's from Oakland, she shouts it!" the mayor's tweet continued on Wednesday. "Oakland ❤️ you Amy!"
Schneider also took to her own Twitter account to commemorate the special occasion, re-tweeting Mayer Schaaf.
"It's Amy Schneider Day in Oakland!" the game show millionaire also wrote. "I love this town so damn much, and to be honored like this, to be told that I've made Oakland proud...I'm genuinely getting emotional over here."
The news comes in the wake of reports that Schneider is expected to return to the iconic show for the Tournament of Champions and may be making some additional appearances as well.
Last month, executive producer Michael Davies noted on the Inside Jeopardy podcast that Schneider will automatically be granted a spot in the semifinals of the tournament, along with Matt Amodio and Mattea Roach, who are all "so far ahead of the curve" that placing them in the lower bracket wouldn't be fair.
Schneider also hinted to Them earlier this year that she suspects to be back on the show for something other than the tournament, but fans will just have to wait and see what that'll mean! Could hosting be in her future?
