It all began with a tweet from a West Boca high school student who loves to watch "Shark Tank" with her family.

Thanks to senior Madison Borman's message, four Sharks visited her school, Olympic Heights High, in January and thrilled 1,500 students in the school gym with tales from their life of entrepreneurship and advice on how to build a business from scratch.

The visit will be televised for the first time at 10 p.m. Sunday on ABC.

On the show, now in its 10th season, entrepreneurs try to get the Sharks to invest in their products. Four Sharks visited the West Boca school: Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, fashion mogul Daymond John, venture capitalist Kevin O'Leary and Drybar founder Alli Webb, who grew up in Boca Raton and attended Olympic Heights.

Borman won the Shark Tank High School Sweepstakes with a randomly selected tweet after the show asked students what they had learned from an October episode.

During the visit, the Sharks took questions from students for about 50 minutes. But it's not clear how much will be shown when the episode airs on Sunday.
