The American Forensics Association National Individual Events Tournament (AFA-NIET)
The American Forensic Association National Individual Events Tournament (AFA-NIET) is an intercollegiate, individual events based forensics tournament held in conjunction with the first Saturday in April, beginning on the prior Friday and continuing through the subsequent Monday. The AFA-NIET has significantly more stringent qualification procedures and a smaller, but more exclusive field of competition. Both team and individual sweepstakes awards are given to the best overall performing team and individual at each AFA-NIET. Team sweepstakes awards are given to the teams with the highest total of sweepstakes points earned by the team's individual competitors.
