    recognition of / for

    Hi,

    Question:
    Do I use recognition correctly?
    If yes, should I use of or for?

    Sentence1:
    I got the Holo academic award last year. This is the recognition of / for my hard working.
    Sentence2:
    I got the Holo academic award last year. This is the recognition of / for my academic achievements.

    Thanks
