No, you can't.  Don't most statements at the bottom of the summary 
sheet say something as to your operating within the rules and regulations
of your licensing authority, as well as the contest?  

E.G., ARRL FD Form: 
This certifies that the station whose call appears above was operated
    in accordance with the current field day rules and that, to the best of
    my knowledge, the points and scores set forth in the above summary are
    correct and true. This station was operated in accordance with FCC
    rules and regulations. I agree to be bound by any decision of the ARRL
    Awards Committee.

After all, the time when you were running 50 kW didn't

Yeah, but I'll betchya that 50 kW "counts" for special attention 
and an "award" (pink slip?) from the FCC.

When KG5U calls 'em at 5 watts to work 'em at 5 watts, 
they better by God hear me.  After all, I went to a lot of trouble to 
reduce my power output to 5 watts.
