3. High Point

We’ve been ranking the cities of the Triad each week since our first issue, based on statistical analysis, current events and fleeting emotions. To complete the year-end tally we’ve awarded two points for first place, one point for second and nothing for third. Predictably, the Third City comes in… third, with a few wins but many zeroes in the High Point column. Final score: 34.

2. Winston-Salem

Winston-Salem had a great 2014, with 19 First Place finishes. But a run in Third Place this spring nudges the Camel City into the middle slot with a final score of 48.

1. Greensboro

Greensboro had just 14 First Place finishes this year, fewer than Winston-Salem, but almost always managed to finish in the money of these weekly rankings. A strong run of Second Place finishes gives Greensboro the top score of the year at 49, beating out Winston-Salem by a single point. Surely the Greensboro Partnership will be using this as a recruitment tool by February.
