Autofill a lookup field from a picklist value?

Hi all,

I have a picklist that stores names of people. I also have a lookup field to contact.

I want to know if there is a way to auto-populate the lookup field whenever the picklist value has been selected. This will be all be done on the Event object.

Could someone provide an example too? Would be much appreciated!
