awards form changes.png

Changes to the awards form. All of the awards forms should be updated in the next day or two with this style. Let us know if anything should be changed or added in terms of the awards request template. We've added a header with a link to the awards table with the pictures and descriptions of the awards. Added the ability to select multiple awards at once. Also changed the verbiage from "upload your evidence." to "Upload your Screenshot!"

-- The screenshots are not as important/restricted as they used to be in the past. Do the best you can with providing the screenshot for the award, but sometimes may not be necessary.
