Yo. Does it help him a lot if somebody's received a book prize? ex. Harvard Book Prize, Caltech Signature Award, etc.

I disagree, Book Awards are very prestigious in many schools. Only the top ten ranked students get them at my daughters H.S. I've read where this is definitely a good award to list.

At our high school book awards only went to the top girl and top boy in the junior class. A book award will not get you into college. But it is just one more award or achievement that one would list on an app. A student needs to show that he/she has achieved. A book award is just one of the many types of achievements one could show. My daughter got that award from Wellesley College and she will list it on her app with other awards. Obviously there are other good awards or selections besides book awards, but book awards are one of the ones that is widely recognized.
