Can I make it into top schools like Columbia or Brown with these credentials?
Overall, I make all A's, mostly A+'s. (particularly freshman/sophomore years) However, this year I worked a lot on an extensive science fair project, and I have received 2 B's. These are my only B's, however, and I go to a highly competitive high school (top 100 Newsweek) and am still in the top 5% of my class. As a result of my science fair project, I won the Grand Award, the Young Scientist Award, ($50,000, chance to be on Jay Leno, etc.) at the Intel International Science Fair, the largest pre-college science competition in the world.
In addition, I won 1st place/1st Grand Category at the Intel ISEF, 2nd at another international science competition (ISWEEEP) , 1st in the Stockholm Junior Water Prize contest (largest environmental competition in the world), 1st/Grand Award at district, regional, and state fair competitions, and about 12 other special awards, such as the Environmental Protection Agency's Sustainability Award. I won numerous other awards associated with my project, but these are the main ones.

-competed in science fair all years of school, in high school I received 1st or 2nd place at all levels up to state until this year (jr yr) when I won at the International level
I took all Advanced (usually AP or IB) classes, and took the most classes possible (8)
I am one year ahead in math/science
All A's and 2 B's (in my calculus class)
