The National All-Star Academic Tournament (NASAT) is run by High School Academic Pyramid Questions. It is a national tournament for state all-star teams, meaning that only one team from each state or Canadian province is allowed to enter in the tournament. The first occurrence of this tournament was held June 12-13, 2010 at Vanderbilt and was well-received.

This is not the first tournament to use state all-star teams, since that was formerly done by PAC/NTAE. However, this was the first tournament using all-star teams to feature pyramidal questions and one-on-one matches.
