October 22, 2015, Walker County hosted their county land judging competition. The schools entered in the competition were: Curry, Dora, Parrish, Oakman, Cordova, and Walker County Center of Technology. Curry High School’s Hunter Wilson was the high individual scorer. Curry High School won 1st place and Cordova won 2nd place. The competition gives students a chance to compete at the county level in efforts to show methods of conservation and adequate land use capabilities for a specific tract of land. Students participating in the event and instructors did a great job preparing for this event. The event took place at Dorman Grace’s farm, where his son, Cade, is growing cotton. This is the first cotton crop to be grown in Walker County in more than 40 years. NRCS Walker County field office and Area Soil Scientist (Milton Tuck), Walker County Soil & Water Conservation District, Walker County Board of Education, Alabama Forestry Commission and WCSWCD Reclamation played a role in making the contest a success.
