Want to map out your goals and activities before submitting?

Download the workbook resources by clicking the buttons above to draft out your goals, action plan, and log your hours and months of activity before submitting. Using this workbook is optional, but some participants prefer to use this offline version of the record book before submitting via Submittable (below).


Get started with your online record book – Submittable!

If you would like to submit in 2024 and this is your first Submittable record book:

  1. Create a new Submittable account or log in.
    Please note, participants were not given a login and they will need to make their own account if they have not done so already
  2. Select the 2024 form on the Submittable homepage and start your application.
  3. Submit your 2024 application when you are ready. 

Read our Submittable Guide for Participants here.

If you would like to submit in 2025, but already started a 2024 Submittable application, you will need to transfer your 2024 work to the 2025 form.

  1. Starting on January 1, 2025, select the new 2025 form on the Submittable homepage.
  2. Copy and paste your 2024 work to the new 2025 form.
    The old 2024 form will still be available to view for a short period of time, but participants will not be able to submit it.
  3. Participants will need to request signatures in the 2025 form, even if they have signatures in the 2024 form.
  4. Submit your 2025 record book when you are ready.
