Straight E.

How is this a 700/800 level question? Pretty simple to me if you cross out modifiers

Was it (Marking it as a "700/800 level question ") a strategy to attract quick responses? I'd guess so.

Ans. E
Idiomiomatic - Correct idiom is awarded the not awarded with. Ruling out A and B.
C is in is out because Congressional medal is not was.
D doesnt make sense.

Two things to look out for in this question:
1) It's "were awarded the" and not "were awarded with the"
2) It's "in recognition of" and not "for recognition of".
