Is the Honors/Awards Section for individual awards only, or can team ones count in certain situations?
Answered

I competed in a math competition run through a university (not my typical math league), and my team of 3 people got a top 10% distinction. On the contest results website my name is listed for this, so can I add this to my Honors section?

Sure, that seems like a clear award because often in HS, awards like this are given to other groups that compete. If you win State or Nationals in Model UN, or Decca or Robotics, you will almost get group recognition versus an individual one.
