<p>Several of my apps ask for this, and I was wondering what kinds of awards fall under this category. Does it have to be limited to academics in school, or would other things also count, like say National Merit, or All-State Choir?</p>


<p>yea i honestly don't know... so i just bunched them all in there</p>

<p>I think it could include National Merit, but not choir. Academic usually refers to things regarding grades and such.</p>

<p>What's the verdict? Or does it not really matter?</p>

<p>it really doesn't matter ... </p>

<p>scholastic: "of or relating to schools or scholars; especially : of or relating to high school or secondary school"</p>


<p>"scholastic distinctions" therefore would imply awards, distinctions, etc. that you have earned in school or through schoolwork.</p>

<p>Put whatever is important to you that is related to school. ha!</p>
