    Generally, admissions officers are only looking for achievements and extracurricular during high school, so I would not include awards from 2007.

    Here is a link on what to include in this section: http://www.collegeessayguy.com/blog/2014/11/23/common-app-additional-info

    I agree with sophie unless it is something very high level, national level, you probably wouldn't want to mention something like that. I can see putting it if you won or placed high in the Scripps Spelling Bee, for instance. Many people use that section to mention a hardship they had that didn't fit elsewhere. It is perfectly okay to leave that section blank.
