Tall City Invitational Swing Midland Lee and Trinity vIQT TFA

2020 — Online, TX/US

29th Annual Tall City Invitational Speech and Debate Tournament

Sponsored by Midland Lee Rebels & Midland Trinity Chargers


“The human voice. It’s the instrument we all play. It’s the most powerful sound in the world. Probably the only one that can start a war or say “I love you.” And yet many people have the experience that when they speak people don’t listen to them. Why is that? How can we speak powerfully to make change in the world?” - Julian Treasure
