This is a region by region decision. My region is allowing fully virtual S&E contests.
Talk to your region exec sec and ask why it's not set up as a virtual contest. Maybe it's because they're not comfortable running it that way. Maybe it's due to copyright concerns.
Maybe it's because they simply aren't computer savvy enough to run a virtual contest. No offense intended - but generally, many of our ExecSecs are older, and are less familiar with cloud-based computing and the new educational paradigm we're all living in, since in many cases they are no longer in a classroom.
That being said, check to see if a neighboring region is hosting a virtual contest, and see if you're allowed to enter there. Given the state of the world in 2021, I can see this being allowed for any number of reasons.
