I am in between B and D for this one. I am not sure whether the correct idiom will be award with or just award. I probably choose B.

I say the answer is E
In A & B "with" is unnecessary and cancels those out.
Word order in C for "long-overdue in", and D is missing the comma to separate clauses after "award"
POE leaves E as your only option
