Thursday is the last day of school in the Midlothian ISD, and some students will end the year with something good to celebrate.

The students on a team called Mallet Heads won the district's "Shark Tank" competition.

Students pitched their product and business plans to judges last week.
For the Mallet Heads, the product was a set of interchangeable mallets for drums and percussion instruments. The idea won!

And the Mallet Heads now have $7,500 in seed money to launch their product.
They could win more when the team heads to a national incubator contest this summer.
