A little girl from northern Indiana is getting national attention for her very big idea.

In fact, at just 9-years-old, her ambitious plan has earned her a face-to-face meeting with one of the wealthiest businessmen in the country.

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

Mia will travel to Nebraska later this month to present her proposal to Buffet himself.

She wants to sell colorful stuffed animals, called "concentration bugs," to help children focus on their studies.
