No. This is a planning and preparation tool designed to help you identify and collect all of the information you will need before you begin to create your submission. Once you have written your entry and are ready to submit to Microsoft, go to this site:
Export your answers into the Word template and review everyone’s contribution. Then review the questions in the Microsoft award category you want to respond to. Pay attention to both the summary and the actual questions themselves. Ensure that you have
collected enough information to answer all of the questions.
The data is yours to maintain in your account. The awards module will be open year-round so that you can begin collecting your story information for next year’s award submissions immediately. The goal is to provide you with a destination that can always
be updated with potential award submission stories as they happen.
