What are the changes on the new system?
While the new system follows the similar process in submitting for Discovery or Bronze Awards, there are minor changes to note:
1. You can order for Discovery Award certificates in advance of a Discovery project's completion.
Discovery and Bronze Award certificates can be ordered blank (without student names).
Since the new system is very similar to the old one, you can still use active voucher codes.
