be able to access your results and then print your own certificate from the
contest sponsors  website for those that are eligible.

Bruce Horn WA7BNM has developed something like this for the NAQP. I received

The technology is available. The problem will be to convince contest
sponsors like the CQWW to use it. This will be a much more difficult process
since some sponsors have an established track record of ignoring the wishes
of its participants.
