|Assunto:||Award vs. Prize|
In short, an award is usually the result of a decision made by a committee, group of judges, etc. It is not for a single incident but rather for several things. A prize, on the other hand, is recognition that someone has won a competition or contest. It is usually for a single incident.
She won an award for being the best student of the year. (Not one incident, but a yearlong series of incidents. It was not a contest.)
He won First Prize for the entry of his famous lasagna. (Not a series of incidents, but for having the best lasagna at the festival contest.)
