St. Norbert College is now accepting nominations for the Civis Princeps Silver
Knight Award which will be presented at the 2008 De Pere Community Night on
Tuesday, Oct. 21. All nominations are due no later than Tuesday, Sept. 2.

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. Harry Macco was chosen as the Silver
Knight Award winner in 2007.

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.

To request a nomination form via mail or for additional questions, please contact
