Ever wish you had more to show for your pinning than subpar cake pops and disappointing crayon “art”?

Now’s your chance! Enter the Esurance Dream Road Trip — Pin It to Win It Sweepstakes and you could win the road trip of a lifetime. Whether you’ve been plotting your way up the coast of California or itching to go from Boston to the Bayou, we’ll help get you there.

The Prizes

One grand prize winner will get $1,400 to spend on ground transportation (Rental car? Bus? Train trip?!), a $1,200 gas card, and $5,000 to stock up on all the beef jerky and soda necessary for that trip down Route 66.

Two other lucky winners will score a $1,000 gas card or a GoPro camera — the perfect gear to get you to Girls’ Weekend in Vegas or help you capture the sunset over the Great Lakes.
