Hello! Just wanted to know something regarding validity of certificates

For college applications, prizes / certificates won till what grade are considered valid? [As in for example, 9th grade or older, 8th grade or older], or is it worth putting in most of the significant achievements that have been attained?

FYI, you accidentally posted this twice. I recommend going back and deleting the other one b/c some people here on Collegevine have the habit of giving negative votes to double posting. I don't know why because double posting is normally an accident but just warning you before you lose too much Karma :)

Nevermind, someone else responded to your other post so don't delete it please.

Normally, anything you include on the application is 9th grade and above, unless it was ongoing (eg, a competition you entered in 8th grade and finished in 9th.) However, I took some high school classes in 8th grade so those still go on my transcript.
