Refusing an award - good reason or arrogance?

Refusing an award - good reason or arrogance?
If anyone of you remembers, when I first joined a couple of years ago I had talked about how I was involved in local organizations for cultural initiatives, and had even published a forgettable poetry book on Lario lake popular traditions and places.
Two years later, this morning, the Unione Comuni Lario e Monti (Union of Towns Lario and Mountains) saw fit to send me an e-mail telling me my work has been awarded the Silver Prize for Representation of local culture.
They want to make also some bullcrap Zoom presentation ceremony. I'm thinking to write them I won't accept it because it's from an Institution who ignored me when I tried to kickstart a project, I don't recognize their authority anymore and the book itself is forgettable.
Those are my reasons, but I'm considering to not even reply and ignore them.
What should I do?
