Title says it all, would really appreciate some help! Here are my awards/honors.. I know they're pretty basic and insignificant but whatever

• AP Scholar award with Distinction
• Member of The National Society of High School Scholars
• Member of the Johns Hopkins center for Talented Youth Program
• Participant in the 2016 TOPSS Competition for High School Psychology Students
• MVP Award for Varsity winter track and field (2015)
• Most Improved Award for Varsity spring track and field (2013)
National Honor Society *School*
Science Honor Society (I included all the other subject honor societies in my activities because I'm an officer for the rest)


Also, I added the track awards in my activites *the description* so I'm not sure if I should still include it in the honors section

    I'd say MVP award.

    AP award, you can tell someone got it from their self-reported scores.
    National Society of High School Scholars-What were the requirements for this?
    John Hopkins-That's in 8th grade which is before high school so it doesn't count.
    Participating in a competition-Are there any requirements to participate?
    National Honor Society-
    Science Honor Society-Both these depend on if they're difficult to get into or not.

    You have only eight. List them all. I'd put MVP and your local NHS at top. List NSHSS last or omit it -- it's the most meaningless.
