Confused about 'position held/honors won'

I'm a little unsure about this part. I get the sense that they're looking for your leadership positions, but do they still want a position that isn't prestigious/leadership-y.
Like, for orchestra, I'm in the first violin section (not concert master though). Is this what they're looking for?

    Yes, I think that'd be fine... Basically, I used the "position" box to explain what I did with the activity, even if it wasn't always an actual title. I used the other box to give a short explanation of exactly what the activity was.

    In any case, I doubt anyone will have a real problem with it even if it isn't technically correct.

    Oh okay, that would make sense. I tried to squish my personal involvement and what the activity was all in the description, it would make more sense to spread it out.
