After winning America's Most Mannerly City designation for the 11th consecutive year, Charleston received the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007. Charleston remains at the top in 2009 and will be receiving the Most Mannerly City Preservation Award. Savannah received the second highest number of votes and will be added to the list of the Most Mannerly Cities again this year.  


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 years contest, Charleston received 24% of the total votes; of the 24%, only 2% were from residents of the Charleston area. Savannah received 4% of the total votes, while New Orleans received 2% of the total votes to finish third.


The votes for the Most Mannerly City 2010 are being accepted by the Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette, Inc. through December 31, 2010.
