Lots of people exaggerate their achievements on their CV so let your conscience decide...

The award isn't the thing employers are looking for. They are looking to see evidence of relevant skills you can demonstrate through the activity eg leadership, teamwork, responsibility etc. There's no need to lie.

Why not just talk about the volunteering that you did? You don't have to have got an award to make something worthwhile and interesting to employers. Talk about the skills you gained and the things you learned while volunteering.
