I know this probably has an obvious answer, but the border is still a bit fuzzy for me in distinguishing between scholastic honors and non-scholastic honors.
MIT's app lists the following
List any scholastic distinctions you have won since entering high school and indicate the level of distinction. List any non-scholastic distinctions you have won since entering high school and indicate the level of distinction.
Hmm, I don't think that's quite right. I'm pretty sure indivually entering Intel and winning it would be considered academic (scholastic) even though it is not through school. Also in this category would be winning a writing award for something published outside school, or doing well in math contests without your school math team.
I would say non-scholastic awards are things you could without ever studying, e.g. qualifying for an Olympic team, volunteer of the year, Eagle Scout, winning a poker championship, receiving an Oscar.
I thought scholastic was anything academic (as in anything related to the core subjects- Math, Science, English, Foreign langauges, Social Sciences...) and non-scholastics was anything non-academic (like clubs).
So Science competitions/Olympics, winning an essay contest (either within or outside of school), honour roll would be considered scholastic, and stuff like scouts, sports, games stuff, volunteering, and community service would be non-scholastic.
Would it be bad taste, then, to "apply my own rule consistently" that scholastic would pertain to core subjects only? I've done research and I'm in Technology Student Association, and I was hoping to sort my awards as follows:
