What goes in the Honors and Awards section?

The Honors and Awards section follows the Skills section. I think ending the resume with the Honors and Awards section leave the recruiter on a positive note. I recommend putting honors like Dean’s List and Term Honors which are related to GPA directly in the Education section (ex. Example of Dean’s List), but all other honors and awards should go in the Honors and Awards section. The items you put in this list can come from college or high school, however, you should not include awards from middle school. It is good to include anywhere from two to six entries in this section. In this Honors and Awards example, I show many types of honors and awards, but you would normally not list this many in this section.
