Most American teenagers have shelves filled with plastic trophies from sports and other competitions going back to kindergarten. Some students are not sure what they are supposed to do; they ask if community service hours or a music achievement certificate count for this list.
In this post I will explain what this section means and how to prepare to shine when filling it out. Not extracurricular, not community service.
To put it in simple English, colleges like to see applicants who win academic awards because they are educational institutions. Most smart and hard-working high school students will earn some academic awards automatically, finding out about them after the fact, such as a marking period honor roll.

Such exams include to name a few: Over half the Finalists are selected for merit scholarships. I recommend that juniors prepare for the PSAT with a tutor or, at minimum, with a test prep book, so as to perform at least well enough to earn a Letter of Commendation, and maybe even higher.
