APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN CLICK HERE

The Funding Arts and Music Education (FAME) Committee of the Junior League of San Antonio, Inc. is dedicated to encouraging San Antonio youth in the performing arts. Our mission is to organize and coordinate the Margaret Tobin FAME Awards, which recognizes the best and brightest performing arts programs in public and private high schools in San Antonio and surrounding areas.

The Margaret Tobin FAME Awards are named for Margaret Tobin (1900-1989), civic leader and Junior League of San Antonio member, in honor of her vision and generous support of the performing arts.  Through the FAME Awards, the Junior League of San Antonio is able to impact arts education and support local youth in the performing arts.  Junior League of San Antonio volunteers organize and coordinate the event and monetary awards are granted to the arts programs of the award winners. We hope you join us for this exciting event!
