How cool would it be to see your name in a John Grisham novel?
It could happen, if you are a corporate legal or compliance professional at a United States corporation. That’s who’s eligible in a contest launched today by West called ”Name Your Character.”
Eligible entrants just need to go to NameYourCharacter.com to register, today through April 30, 2009, and watch a short video clip of a movie scene modeled after Grisham’s style.
The winning entrant’s name will be drawn at random and the winner can either enter his or her name for the character or a fictional name they create.
That name will appear in the next Grisham novel, scheduled for release in 2010.
For every eligible entry received, West will make a donation to the Innocence Project of Minnesota, whose mission is to keep innocent people from being convicted, and to free people imprisoned for crimes they didn’t commit.
