Resumes, Digital Submissions & Testing


All competitors, excluding Middle School competitors, MUST turn in a 1-page, maximum, resume in a digital format. Failure to do so by the below deadlines will result in a 'resume requirement penalty' for that competitor.


For competitions occurring before March 22, 2024 ~ due by 11:59 pm on March 5, 2024.

For competitions occurring on or after March 22, 2024 ~ due by 11:59 pm on March 12, 2024.

*Substitutions must turn in the required 1-page resume at the time of the substitution.

**If a model or observer may become a substitute, advisors may turn in a resume with other competitors if desired.

Some competitions will require a hard copy of a competitor's resume. This will be noted on the competition updates page for those specific competitions. No other competitions will accept hard-copy resumes. If a hard copy is required and not turned in, that is a separate penalty. Hard copy resumes do not have to be the same as the one turned in before the competition and are not a substitute for those. Hard-copy resumes may be more in-depth and longer. Any competitions requiring portfolios, such as Job Interview, Employment Application Process, and Health Occupation Portfolio should have more extensive resumes and entire professional portfolios.

Please see the Resume Submission Instructions for full details and submission instructions. 

Digital Submissions

Some competitions require a digital submission of either a letter of eligibility, the entire notebook, or some other document. A list of these competitions and required submissions are below, however, advisors and competitors should view the competition updates for other digital submissions that may be required, but not listed below to avoid any penalties. In the case of substitutions, any additional required documentation or alterations should be turned in at the time of the submission to avoid penalty. Also note that some competitions will have similar required items to be turned in onsite but do not require digital submissions.
