Writing about olympiad in honors

So yesterday I won a state-level chemistry olympiad and will go to the national level, but I'm not sure whether it will be hosted before the regular decision deadline or after. So what should I write in honors about this olympiad if it takes place after the deadline? Thank you in advance:)

You should write just that. Write that you won a state-level chem olympiad. That alone will impress AOs. Good luck, hope this helps!

You can write down "Won State Chemistry Olympiad (or whatever the official award name is), Selected to compete at Nationals in [month 2021/2]"

You could include that in the honors section itself or in the additional information section as more information to contextualize that achievement.

Hope this helped!
