What level of recognition should I pick? (Common App Honors)

For example, I earned a NSDA Degree of Excellence for my competitive success in Speech and Debate. They are a national organization, but I was one of thousands who were awarded it and I got it for local competitive success. As such, who should I put down for its recognition level? I'm similarly confused about AP Scholar awards.

Or more generally, what do the different levels of recognition mean and what should I put down for them?

If you competed only with your local community, then put local. However, if you competed with other countries, then put national. If you're still unsure, I would recommend emailing the organization to ask them.

I competed with schools in my immediate area and at invitationals that attracted nationwide competitors.
