I'm starting to work on my official resume to turn into my congressmen, as well as give to those I request recommendation letters from, and I have a few questions concerning what exactly I should include on it. I was in a program called Odyssey of the Mind for about 7 yrs, and my team and I advanced to the state and world competitive levels quite a few time, and earned medals for it. Would this count as an award, and should I include it on my resume? Also, I'm a member of one or two clubs that I participate in but don't play a really big role in. Should I include these on my resume, or just leave them out? I have a lot of other clubs that I hold leadership positions in, and while I do contribute to these clubs, I don't want to crowd up my resume with a bunch of stuff that looks like I just threw it on to say I did it. Any other pointers on resumes would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
