Which honors should I use?
Answered

Hi,

I'm deciding what to put as my last honors in the honors section. I currently have:

1. National: National Latin Exam Gold Medal 9, 10, 11

2. National: Le Grand Concours Gold Medal 9, 10

3. National: National African American Scholar 11

4. School: Rensselaer Medal 11

For my fifth, I can either put the recipient of a competitive scholarship at my school for all four years, the math department award for my school in tenth grade, or the 2021 Northeastern winner for the National Chemistry Week Illustrated Poem contest?

Please help! Thank you!

Whichever ones you do not include you can always add in the additional information section and explain a bit as to what these awards entail.
