The National Schools Debating Championships (NSDC) are Australia's premier debating competition, coordinated by the Australian Debating Federation (ADF) and held every year in a different Australian capital. Tasmania has hosted the NSDC three times, most recently in 2012.

As the sole Tasmanian affiliate of the ADF, the Tasmanian Debating Union selects the state team from a series of selection events held around the state. Tasmania has fielded a team in most Championships, and has won the Championships once, in 1980, and been Runner-Up twice.
