- Introduction: National Speech and Debate Tournament has been held by National Speech and Debate Association (NSDA) since 1931 and is considered the pinnacle of High School speech and debate. Registered students are required to compete in preliminary rounds in their respective events before being selected for the finals. After months of preparation and qualifying tournaments, only 2-7 finalists move forward with the national debate competition. Many National Champions and runners-up get scholarships to college. There are two tournaments each year: National Speech & Debate Tournament and the Middle School National Speech & Debate Tournament.
- Entry fee: Middle school students are required to pay $45-50 per student. High school students are required to pay $75-100 per student.
