Upload Manger does not allow more than a single .PDF for the letter(s) of support

"Please do not submit multipage letters." however, it only allows us to upload one file... Can you see if there are multiple letters saved?

@positiveDeviancy, appreciate the response.

We were just seeking confirmation that your suggestion would not constitute a 'multi-page letter'?

We can definitely merge these, but we were assuming they needed to be separate.

Here is a screen grab from the official rules doc: Page 17 https://americanmadechallenges.org/EROBOT/docs/E-ROBOT_Prize_Official_Rules.pdf

The fact that they mention plural sources gives me confidence that they are open to multiple sources, just not multi-page letters of support. I would defer to the E-Robot Team - EROBOT.Prize@nrel.gov to confirm, but you can still edit your submission after you submit, if you need to change it,

Thanks @Positive Deviancy for jumping in! You are correct that individual letters are limited to a single page and multiple letters should be combined into a single pdf document.
