I don't believe there's a word limit and if there was and you hit it, you wrote way too much (you can get away with 1 or 2 sentences for the majority of those award, hobby, etc. parts). Apart from that, just the essays having a 500 word limit should be your only worry.
Contact person just needs to be credible, not that they'll ever call any of them unless something seems completely out of place with everything else.
Simply put, fill it out like any other application, use to-the-point sentences for non-essay boxes and you're good to go
