NFA National Championship Tournament

NFA sponsors a national championship tournament for both individual event speaking and Lincoln-Douglas debate. The tournament normally covers 4-5 days, and championships are awarded in nine individual events and Lincoln-Douglas debate. Team awards are given in several divisions, based on the entry size of each school. Normally, between 75-125 colleges and universities attend the national tournament.

Congratulations to Western Kentucky University, the 2016 national champions, and to Farrah Bara (University of Texas at Austin), the pentathalon (individual sweepstakes) champion.


The 2017 NFA National Championship Tournament will be hosted by the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire on April 13-17, 2017
