Mensagem: 

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.)
