April is here, not the cruellest month but bringing laughter,a little sunshine, and a new issue of our journal with articles (as Francis Bacon would have said) to be tasted and swallowed, chewed and digested, read only in parts, or merely read by deputy and extracts made of the more important arguments.

We thank you for participating in the Fourth Hektoen Grand Prix Essay Competition.
Winners will receive prizes of $1,500 and have their articles published in Hektoen International. Winners will be announced June 1, 2016. Please view the competition guidelines for further details.
