Judges Essays for TIMS

Are there any requirements for the TIMS judges essays? Is there a maximum length? A minimum?

From TIMS:

Please be brief. If some answers are longer than 8 lines (40 chars/line), please make sure others are shorter, or the total text of all essay answers may not fit on your printed yearbook page the Judges will see.

Maximum 255 character per heading. Headings are:

Team History
Team Goals

Team’s FIRST Impact
Community Description

Team Strengths
Most Significant Challenge Overcome

Robot and Game Strategy
Most Competitive for Which Awards

Funding Sources
Public Awareness

Thank you sir

Is that 255 characters with spaces or without? I would assume with spaces since all the other essays have their requirements n terms of characters with spaces.
