The ASCA High School State Championship, also known as the Alabama Scholastic Competition or Alabama Scholastic Challenge, is a high school state championship that has been held in Alabama since 1989. It is hosted by the Alabama Scholastic Competition Association (ASCA) and runs on an NAQT set with ASCA rules. Middle school and junior varsity championships are held on a different date. The top four teams usually claim a monetary prize, which is up to $750.00 for first place (1st place in $2500.00 in the first year). From at least 1997, winning teams qualified for and previously won paid expenses to the Panasonic Academic Challenge. This practice ended when the PAC went into brief hiatus in 2009. As of 2017, the state champions receive a paid entry to the national championship tournament of their choice. From 1989 until 1992, the championship was broadcast on Alabama Public Television. The top six preliminary scorers of the tournament are declared members of the All State Team.

In 2018, participating schools were split into two divisions. AHSAA classifications 5A-7A as well as schools that are private, magnet, or otherwise selective were placed in Division I. Meanwhile, Public Non-Selective schools in classications 1A-4A were placed in Division II. This arrangement would last 5 seasons, until the divisions were further divided in 2022. In the new arrangement, 5A and 6A split from 7A and the privates to create a new Division II. 1A-4A were relegated to the new Division III. An entry to the ASCA state championship tournament is guaranteed to the winner of the Alabama Independent Schools Association state tournament.
