    It is not a sentence, but the spelling is correct. It would work in a CV/resume as a description for me.

    I would probably write "Certificate of Excellence" as that seems to be the official title of the certificate.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Actually, this certificate isn't written in English so technically it's not the official title :P

    Anyway, is there a problem to write it in lower-case letters?

    I just wanted to emphasize in this sentence that I got some award, less care about emphasizing the title of the certificate.

    Are you using two accounts? Please don't do that- it is confusing and annoys people. One will have to be closed.

    I'm confused, RojerQE.

    Why do you think you know enough to question emr2d2's reply or to speak for JeniaWE, who lives in a different country and speaks a different language?

    Sorry all, I indeed have two accounts and I will close my other one (RojerQE).
    However, what I wrote in RojerQE user is still relevant.
