St. Norbert College is now accepting nominations for the Civis Princeps Silver Knight Award which will be presented at the 2012 De Pere Community Night celebration on Tuesday, Oct. 30. All nominations are due no later than July 15.

Since 1968, this event has celebrated the relationship between St. Norbert College and the De Pere community. The Civis Princeps Silver Knight Award recognizes a resident of De Pere who exemplifies the Norbertine tradition of self-emptying service to the community. The award is bestowed upon an outstanding individual nominated by De Pere service clubs, civic organizations or other members of the community. The winner each year is selected by a vote of past recipients. Last year, Joe Seroogy was honored for the extraordinary amount of time he has devoted to the history, progression and betterment of the De Pere community.

Each nominee must be a current De Pere resident for a minimum of at least five consecutive years who has demonstrated leadership, imagination and dedication and made a significant public service contribution to the community of De Pere. Letters of support and a summary of the nominee's community contributions should be included with the nomination. Anyone, including individuals, service organizations and churches, can nominate persons for this award. Previous nominees must be re-nominated.
