I don't believe you can set a score for AWL.  That would defeat the entire purpose of the rule which, unfortunately, is poorly named.  It is in no way a whitelist.  Check for more information.  The rule is used to adjust scores based on the prior history of the sender.  Setting it manually would make no sense.  All of that said, I disable the thing.  It is too unreliable with my specific mail flow.  I hear it works great for some.
