Q: I can’t find a downloadable entry form to include in my designated shared folder on Dropbox. I know we have to submit an online form and include the form in my designated shared folder on dropbox, how can I do so?
A: After completing the online entry submission, you can review the entry form needed to complete your online entry within your designated shared folder on Dropbox.
Q: Do we submit our full entry online?
A: Yes. Once you have paid for your submission, you will email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask us to share a PACE Awards Dropbox folder with you. Once we confirm your payment, and within 24 hours, we will send you an invitation to a shared Dropbox folder where you can upload your entries.
Q: Why do we have the option of submitting files with our entry form online?
