Mark, you must have looked at Logbook of the World (LoTW) which  
doesn't support VUCC at all.  You need to do it the old fashioned way;  
collect cards and send them to an ARRL approved card checker.  If you  
are wondering when LoTW is going to support VUCC, here is a 'response'  
I received from their president concerning this:

The reason for the delay is simply programming priorities. We realize
there are many members who would like to use LoTW credits for VUCC -- I
would like to myself!
