    I noticed on the vice president nomination application it wants you to upload letters of rec. Does this mean teachers or whoever should send their letters to me and I upload them? Can they just send them to the academy?

    Last year the VP nomination did not require recommendations so this is new. I would try to reread the directions and see what it says. I don't think that you should send the letters to the academy though unless it specifically says to.

    Also letters of recommendation are supposed to be private and the students are not supposed to read it (not supposed to :wink: ). Talk to your guidance counselor... maybe the teachers could type their letters and send it to your counselor, who then can help you upload them?

    Worst case have them send them to you and do it yourself. I ended up being able to read mine (oops) because my guidance counselor and I faxed my application over to my MOC and I was able to keep a copy of my forms for whatever reason if they didn't receive it. Hope this helps a little bit. Best of Luck :smile:

    Thank you for the advice. I was also wondering if the writers of the letters should sign them? It seems like that would be appropriate.

    If possible they should sign them. But if they are uploaded on the computer I'm not sure how that would work unless they printed, signed, and then scanned back on the computer... Just try to do your best with what the application asks.
