FAME, now in its ninth year, is dedicated to encouraging San Antonio youth in the performing arts. The mission of this awards program is to recognize the best and brightest performing arts programs in San Antonio (and surrounding areas) public and private high schools. Through an open application process, FAME provides a stage for students to hone their skills in front of a live audience, culminating in cash awards that deliver funding directly to performing art programs.
Through the annual FAME Awards Program, the Junior League of San Antonio has provided over $50,000 dollars to area high school performing arts programs. These funds have supported various school resources such as competition expenses, Master Class instructors who provide training to students, and the licensed use of published materials such as scripts and musical scores.
