The winners will serve as correspondents on the road, sharing their adventures on social media and inspiring other travel hopefuls along the way. Each grand prize is valued at $6,000 and includes two tablets to make sharing the adventure a breeze.

"With more than 1,100 company-owned and franchised locations, Motel 6 is en route to countless bucket list destinations," said Miceli.
