St. Norbert College has announced its schedule of events for the second
annual Winter Wonder Week, Feb. 19-25. Winter Wonder Week is a time for
St. Norbert College students, faculty and staff to participate in a wide range
of activities meant to develop a strong community bond.

Winter Wonder Week kicks off Monday, Feb. 19 with a 4:30 p.m. dinner and
5:30 p.m. auction in the Sensenbrenner Memorial Union. Proceeds from the
night will go to the Alya and Leslie Memorial scholarships.

The SNC Idol semi-finals will be held Feb. 20 at 8:30 p.m. in the Ray Van
Den Heuvel Campus Center. The contest will display the best and worst vocal
talent at St. Norbert College. Participants must be registered for Winter
Wonder Week to compete, but attendance is free and open to the public.

On Wednesday, Feb. 21, an Ash Wednesday Mass will be held at 6 p.m. in
Old St. Joseph Church to celebrate the beginning of the Lenten season.

Polar Palooza is set for Thursday, Feb. 22 from 6-10 p.m. in front of the
Campus Center. Teams will build a snow form using twine and pallets for the
Sunday sculpting competition while spectators will be treated to an ice
skating rink, a hot fire and hot chocolate nearby.

The finals of SNC Idol will be held Feb. 23 at 7 p.m. for ten finalists
performing with a live karaoke band in the Campus Center. Admission is free
and open to the public and a cash bar will be available.

On Saturday, Feb. 24, teams of four will compete in a "frozen goose race," in
which three blindfolded members pull a sleigh carrying the fourth person to
different check points. The race will be held on the intramural fields and is
free and open to the public.

The snow sculpting competition will take place on Sunday, Feb. 25, as teams
try to create the biggest and best snow sculptures. The event begins at
10:30 a.m., and judges will declare the winners at 4 p.m. The public is
welcome to attend.

Finally, a Norbertine Plaque Hunt will take place all week until the plaque is
found. A medal of St. Norbert mounted on a plaque will be hidden and
teams will use daily clues to locate it.
