Links on college applications?

Is it acceptable to put links to projects listed or articles about awards won? I have a very common name, so an award I won is quite hard to find a record of. Can I just include a link to the article about it? Similarly a lot of my ECs are independent projects I’ve done. Can I just link a github so AO’s know that I’m not just making wild claims.

Yes. But AOs may not click on the links. So read nothing into it if you got clicks or your don’t.
