St. Norbert College is now accepting nominations for the Civis Princeps Silver Knight Award which will be presented at the 2007 De Pere Community Night on Tuesday, Oct. 30. All nominations are due no later than Tuesday, Sept. 4.

Since 1968, De Pere Community Night 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. The late Sally Kellerman was chosen as the Silver Knight Award winner in 2006.

Each nominee must be a De Pere resident for a minimum of 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 form. Anyone, including individuals, service organizations and churches, can nominate individuals for this award. Previous nominees must be re-nominated.

More information about the award and Community Night, as well as the nomination form, can be found on the St. Norbert College web site at http://www.snc.edu/communications/events/communitynight.html.
