The American Forensic Association National Speech Tournament (formerly the National Individual Events Tournament (NIET)) the is an organization devoted to facilitating and celebrating speech education excellence at the intercollegiate level. The NST is held every April and brings students from across the nation to compete for national championships in 11 events. Students reach the NST through a rigorous at-large and district qualification system verified by organizational officers. Since 1978, the NST has served hundreds of colleges and universities and thousands of students. In April 2019 the National Individual Events Tournament (NIET) voted to change its name to the National Speech Tournament (NST).
