The International Lactation Consultant Association is sponsoring a competition designed to identify outstanding manuscripts relating to human lactation or breast-feeding in 1996. Authors may enter one of two categories: a Literature Review competition or a Research Paper competition. The winner in each category will receive $500 (US currency); winning manuscripts will be published in the Journal of Human Lactation. Entrants need not be members of the International Lactation Consultant Association. Students are encouraged to enter.
