A little girl from northern Indiana had an idea that earned her a face-to-face meeting with one of the wealthiest businessmen in the country.

Mia Bauer, 9, of Granger got to meet Warren Buffett as a finalist in his 'Grow Your Own Business Challenge.' The contest allows kids to submit their business ideas for a chance to win $5,000.

Her idea was colorful stuffed animals, called 'concentration bugs,' to help children focus on their studies.

Unfortunately, Mia did not win but she and other contestants received $5,000 each.
