How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
This is great, congratulations! If you have the space I would suggest putting the honorable mention in the honors section. I would also suggest prioritizing state/national-level awards in this section over regional/local high school awards -- if they are unique and harder to accomplish as a high schooler. Not all awards that you list have to be placements (i.e. first/second/third place), honorable mentions at a high level are still substantial awards.
