The Star Awards recognize the crucial role that volunteers play. These honored volunteers, who contribute countless hours of their time to music, dance, and theatre companies throughout San Diego County, are crucial to making our arts community thrive. From doing office work to ushering, to helping create costumes, they assist wherever needed to help make our shows happen – all behind the scenes. Awards are presented to volunteer at the annual awards ceremony and gala, presented by The San Diego Performing Arts League.

The Star Awards’ highest recognition, the “Standing Ovation Award”, was last awarded to Jay and Julie Sarno at the 26th Star Awards, and the Pioneer Award was presented to Jennie Hamilton. Join us Monday, November 13, 2023 for the 27th Star Awards.
