Question Writing a Game Proposal

(Not sure if this goes here. If not, please move.)

I'm creating a match game in Flash that will help teach mathematics to third graders. This is all being done as part of two classes (independent studies). Where can I find what goes into a game proposal document? I'm not looking for something huge. This is what information I already have that will be put into said document:

genre: educational
target audience: 3rd grade students (ages 7-9)
description: Using the mouse, the player will click on a card that will either have a math problem or solution. It is up to the student to match the answers to the problems.
software used: Adobe Flash (version TBD)
budget: $150 (to pay for Adobe Flash)
Timetable for completion (of game): TBD

That's all I have for the moment. I haven't started making the game yet (Flash independent study) so I have no graphical documentation yet. I've been looking all over the net for answers. Some sites say the proposal is short, others say it's 10-15 pages. This is really confusing. Are there any example documents I could look at for clues? Help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

A document that is used to excite and interest potential investors necessarily contains less detailed information about the game specifics, and more information about the game's target market, platforms, and competition. But start with these to get more ideas:
