The 2008 National Scholastic Championship was won by Walt Whitman, consisting of Shantanu Jha, Adam Marshall, Daniel Brezina, and Damjan Korac. The tournament was held at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.

Tournament results

Walt Whitman beat Thomas Jefferson in the championship game 440-390. The teams were tied 360-360 after regulation, so a three question tiebreaker of mACF-format tossups and bonuses was played. The two semi-finalists were Dorman and Wilmington Charter.

The tournament used the old PACE NSC tournament format and tiered consolation playoffs.

Individual results

The top five scorers at the tournament (through the prelim rounds) were Charlie Dees of North Kansas City, Daichi Ueda of Walter Johnson, Dallas Simons of MLK Magnet, Shantanu Jha of Walt Whitman and Henry Gorman of Wilmington Charter respectively.
