Where would I add National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist in the Chancing Engine?

I was selected to be a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist and would like to see how much this award strengthens my resume. Where should I add it in the chancing engine?

Looking at all of the options, it looks like there is no place to put in a National Merit Scholarship. I don't really think it counts as an extracurricular, I would count it as an award. Since there is no place to put this, just assume that it slightly increases your chances by 1-2%. Although impressive, awards such as those are very unimportant compared to academics.
