The Gold Bug won another contest, but really, at this point in early Amemrican literature there were no "presitigious awards" such a poet laureate(which would have gone to the establishment scion Longfellow or to Emerson at any rate).
I fail to see the relevance of awards anyway. Popularity, critical acclaim and lasting positive influence in the test of time far exceed any of the trifling prizes that sparked Poe's first successes.
