Not really. I find that if you are pretty natural about how you go about HP then the awards will come in good time. There's no point getting hung up on the accolades.
Just write hubs and read other hubs that interest you from the people you are following. You can comment on those hubs when you have something worthwhile to say and check out the forum from time to time to see what's happening etc.
If you do want to concentrate on accolades then concentrate on the ones that celebrate you actually writing hubs. These include the accolades for number of hubs written and views you've achieved. This way you'll increase the chances of earning some money along the way. That's what I do and invariably find that I get other accolades along the way.
