I put an incorrect an honor in my application at NYU what should I do to fix it?

While applying to NYU I put that I got awarded as a winner of an essay contest accidently (I didn't end up winning the award) when I had meant to put another honors award there. What should I do to fix this? I also realized I put this on a few of my other applications before I had noticed my mistake (I know a big oof). Is there is any easier way other than emailing all of them separately?

Email them. Their email is probably on the common app or on their website. They will understand this error and make note of it in your file.
