The proper procedure for this would be to file a 'Request for Packaging'
(RFP) bug, as docuemented on http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/. Please
note that becuase Debian is a volunteer community, there is no guarantee
that somebody will actually package your program for Debian or even take
a look at it (an informative but not too long description of your
program helps a lot here, of course)
