A Ball State University senior has won a chance to have lunch with investor Warren Buffett, which is something others have paid millions to do.

Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary, Business Wire, said Tuesday that
21-year-old Jenna Marie James's video about the future of public relations won the contest it sponsored.

So James will join Buffett and Business Wire executives at the New York Stock Exchange on Sept. 30.

Earlier this year, a private lunch with Buffett sold for $2,626,411 at a charity auction.

James says she's excited to learn from Buffett and talk to him about her generation.

James' winning video talked about some things that are already changing communications, like mobile applications on cell phones, as well as some things that haven't happened yet, like holographic technology.
