Let's compile a list of the more prestigious awards for high schoolers and assign a "prestige" rating to each award which is based on selectivity, honor, credibility, and overall impact on college admissions.
9 - TASP, RSI
8 - ISEF
7 - National Merit Semifinalist
3 - AP Scholar
0 - Who's Who, National Honor Roll
I just added a few onto the scale as "reference" markers, but you can move those around as well based on what you think. Please add other awards as well!!!
