Feb. 7, 2011 (CHARLESTON, S.C.) - The Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette, Inc. is pleased to announce the results of the 2010 Most Mannerly City in America Contest.

Charleston remains at the top in 2010 and will be receiving the Most Mannerly City Preservation Award. Savannah received the second highest number of votes and is awarded recognition as "One of the Most Mannerly Cities in America".
The Most Mannerly City contest title was first founded by etiquette expert and author, Marjabelle Young Stewart. In 2007, Ms. Grosso secured the endorsement of Stewart's family to carry on the contest. "It fits...it seems proper for [someone from] the Most Mannerly City for all these years to take it over," said William Stewart, from the Stewart home in Kewanee, Illinois.
In this year's contest, Charleston received 31% of the total votes; of the 31%, only 9% of those votes were from residents of South Carolina. Savannah received 5% of the total votes, while Atlanta received 2% of the total votes to finish third.
