At the annual statewide Make-A-Wish recognition dinner, my school's Make-A-Wish committee and that of one other school were honored with some youth service award. I've been involved with this committee since Jr. High and have been chair junior and senior year... Also, organized $4,000 fundraiser that was described at the event... Should I mention this on apps? If so, where?

Use it, shows that your leadership has helped

I have the same question. I was National Champion in a competition held by Nintendo, should I list that?

Sounds neat and unique to me :-)

Something similiar to this got one of my friends into Yale. She was a good student, but her course load wasn't as challenging as it should have been. After 9/11 her student council efforts put her on the Opra Winfrey Show--and into Yale.
