Which fact are you using for such information? For example a certificate for a 25 year membership (local club, firefighter, bug collectors society or whatever else).
Or just create a custom fact?

I think a custom fact is not necessary.

a certificate for a 25 year membership (local club, firefighter, bug collectors society or whatever else).

FACT or EVEN are suitable here (both allow the definition of the type). However, it depends on what you want to represent. FACT is timeless, so to speak, whereas EVEN usually happened at a specific point in time.

To go back to the 25 year membership example: With EVEN you can enter the type, time and place of the award (=the ceremony) and with FACT you can enter the mere existence of that certificate.

I am a bit lazy and usually just use EVEN myself:
1 EVEN 25 year membership
2 TYPE Award
2 DATE 2000
2 ADDR 
2 OBJE @X29@

Maybe I wasn't clear, sorry.

I was thinking about the dropdown list, where all the options like Birth, Burial, Census, Ordination, etc are and none of them fit, so I was wondering if there's a more generic option for it.

Yes,

As described above!

Fact and Event are in the drop down!

Listed at the end as “Custom Fact” or “Custom Event”, which produces the GEDCOM above.

may you have to select (activate) the items in the 'control panel' -> 'your tree' -> 'preferences' -> 'Edit preferences / Facts for individual records' -> 'individual facts'

'Fact' and 'Custom Fact' do the same. I was not clear, when I've answered 'I think a custom fact is not necessary.'. At this moment I've thought about a custom tag (the GEDCOM tags with underscore at the beginning).
Hope it's now clear

Yes the wording does get messy!

In addition please note that the way to enter the tags would be:
1 FACT [detail information]
2 TYPE [custom fact name]

Where the "custom fact name" would be "award" and the "detail information" would be the name of the award.

Entered in webtrees as:
