Eagle Scout Andrew James Case of Troop 26 in Palm Harbor was recently recognized as the winner of the 2012 Eagle Scout scholarship contest sponsored by the Clearwater Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, for which he received $100.

He also placed third at the state level of the Eagle Scout scholarship contest, for which he received a congratulatory letter from Charlie Day, the state chairman of the SAR Eagle Scout Scholarship and Recognition Program; $250 from the Florida Society, Sons of the American Revolution; and $100 from the SAR Ladies Auxiliary.

Case's winning scholarship entry included an essay on the Battle of Camden, which took place Aug. 16, 1780, in South Carolina during the Revolutionary War and in which Case's ancestor, Michael Abraham Awalt Sr., a private in the Rowan County, N.C., militia, participated.

Case, a senior at Palm Harbor University High, is the son of Richard and Pamela Case.
