    You can put whatever you like there - it's your profile. If you're proud of it then include it. If not, don't. I can say "tu es un jolie dauphin" and was told (by the website) to include I'm 3% fluent in French.

    Not really. By honours and awards it means either some professional award, ie a BAFTA, Oscar etc or a state award, ie OBE, MBE etc. Obviously profession specific awards Intern of the year etc or possibly competitive scholarships won at Uni would hold value for a few years.

    No - this should go in your education section. However, if you won a special award, e.g. for being the no. 1 student in your year, then that could go there. But as Threeportdrift said, it's mainly for professional awards.
