Text Description of App

In the submission form, devpost provides a section called "Here's the whole story" in which they've stubbed out a few headers of items to talk about. One of which "What it does", is essentially the Text Description of the App that was mentioned as a requirement.
When the rules state that submissions require "a brief (fewer than 250 words) text description of your App"; do you want us to just limit that section to 250 words or to just clear out the entire devpost template and put a 250 word app summary in that textbox?
Or, does it even matter?

    Hi, thanks for the question- yes go ahead and put your description in the "whole story" box. I will use the first 250 words and if you have more, they will be described as "supplemental" when our judges see this - they will not be required to review the supplement. So I recommend focusing on the first 250 words!

    Hi there, I just realized there is a slight difference in where you can put your text - I'd recommend copying the text you put in the "whole story" box, into the text field you also see when you actually do your Submission - that text field says "What's the story behind ..."
