Poetry by Heart
Choose a Poem, Learn It, Recite it.
In 2015, ELSA partnered with the UK National Competition, Poetry by Heart, to bring the event to its network of member schools. The high school competition was a huge success and soon more than 25 international schools in France and abroad were taking part.
ELSA now organizes three different levels of competition running this year: Primary, Middle School and High School. Participating schools organize in-school competitions to identify the finalists who will compete at the inter-school finals.
The grand winner of the High School competition is invited to attend the London Final at the Globe Theater.
