Landmark School sophomore and Westborough native Samantha Cusson recently received a prestigious Gold Key in the Boston Globe Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for her self portrait drawing.

“These awards are validation of our students’ motivation, vision and — most importantly — talent,” said Bob Broudo, headmaster of Landmark School. “Our students work so hard to achieve success in school and this recognition is enormously rewarding.”

Landmark School is an independent, coeducational boarding and day school with elementary, middle and college preparatory high school programs. It caters to students in grades 2 to 12 with language-based learning disabilities, such as dyslexia. The school received 30 Gold and Silver Keys and Honorable Mentions from Boston Globe art and writing awards program.

All individual Gold Key and Silver Key awardees’ work is currently on view and open to the public in the Massachusetts Transportation Building, 10 Park Plaza, in Boston. The exhibit opened on Monday, Feb. 13 and will end on Friday, April 20. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday between noon and 4 p.m.

Gold Key winners’ work will advance to a national competition and national winners will be announced on March 15. Finalists will be included in a public exhibition in New York City in June 2012.
