How would I create a Calendar Workflow using SharePoint Designer 2010 that sends an email to a specific email distribution group  (1 of 5) depending on the department choice (1 of 5) made by the user?

If possible, step by step details please.

See attached video for a solution.  I always put email-subject and email-body in workflow variables for later use.  That way it much simpler to update the two when customers want the email changed to something else.  Otherwise, you'll have to edit 5 workflows (in this case).  Let me know of questions.

be sure to "Publish" the workflow - not just save it - I'm not sure I actually published it in the video...

Here's a picture of the resulitng e-mail.  You could obviously include other fields, etc.  
You should probably make a selction of the Department required and not default it.  Picture of resulting e-mail.
