A Life Well Lived - Having Style 

Jan. 30, 2009 (CHARLESTON, S.C.) - The Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette announces the results of the Most Mannerly City in America title.  Charleston, South Carolina has preserved its position in the Most Mannerly City Contest of 2008. This year Savannah has joined the list of Most Mannerly Cities.  The winners were selected from voting online and by mail to the school over the last year.    


After winning the America�s Most Mannerly City designation for the 11th time, Charleston received the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007. Charleston remains at the top and will be receiving the Preservation Award, a new category in the Most Mannerly City Campaign. Savannah received the second highest number of votes and will be added to the list of Most Mannerly Cities as a welcome newcomer.  The Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette will announce the date the award will be presented in Savannah.   �Charleston is firmly established as a stronghold of manners.  It would only be polite to let the mannerly qualities of other cities shine. It will be from the Most Mannerly to the Most Mannerly,� said Cindy Grosso, owner of the Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette.


 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 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. 


Charleston received 25% of the votes; Savannah received 5% of the votes for America�s Most Mannerly City 2008. The votes for the Most Mannerly City 2009 will be accepted by the Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette from February 1 through December 31, 2009.
