it might sound dumb.
<li>is 1st place in a film competition(national level) considered as academic honors??</li>
<li>is thespian award(district level musical competition/festival) considered as “academic” honors??</li>
<li>i am applying engineering schools, and need to fill out short question(describe your academic honors) in common app. and… as a student without much awards, i dont know what i should write about…
What would be appropriate; #1, #2, or a county-wide engineering contest(but only 4th place) ???</li>
i dont know… what they see as academic honors, and whether write something about engineering-related honors would be beneficial…
advices would be helpful
