ELSA France supports schools in enriching their educational programs and student experiences through student competitions, visiting authors, student workshops and more. 


Building and supporting relationships are precisely what our work is all about.

Student Programs

Poetry by Heart: ELSA’s flagship event for students

Choose a poem, learn it and recite it. Poetry by Heart is a festival of poetry for young people. Founded by Poetry by Heart UK and brought to schools in France by ELSA, it is a high level recital competition that brings together middle and high school students from international schools in France.
