I think you should mention it if the award is significant to you personally. It shows that you put in the time and effort into completing a project. It also shows dedication. But if you have other awards that are more significant to you, I recommend putting those above the bronze award. However, do not put an award on your Common App just to say you have it or just as filler awards.

Any award/achievement is worth at least mentioning it helps boost your profile and it shows that you are hard-working to be able to get an award and I very much think it would be a good idea to put it on your common app.

I would include it if you do not have many awards.
