The bigger the Greer Inland Port grows the more names are needed for the extra cranes used to move containers.

Two more cranes names winners were recognized by South Carolina Port Authority president and CEO Jim Newsome Wednesday.

Abigail Stefanacci, fifth grader at Chandler Creek Elementary School, submitted Carolina Crane.

Emily Salvato, third grader at Crestview Elementary School, submitted Cranefu Panda.

The students earned their schools $500 from the SCPA and they received a plaque and the names painted on the cranes.

The rubber-tired gantry cranes (RTGs) move loaded containers on and off trains, trucks and throughout the container yard.

The Port partnered with five elementary schools, including Buena Vista, Chandler Creek, Crestview, Skyland and Woodland, for the contest during the month of February.

Over 140 student entries were received and judged by SCPA employees.

Other winners were:

Fermin Redondo, Crestview Elementary School, selected Craneous Maximus

Ashley Sell, Woodland Elementary School, selected Atlas.

Levi Turner, Chandler Creek Elementary School, selected Grrrr.
