The grand prize-winning design will be featured in more than 350 DoubleTree by Hilton hotels in the United States for a limited time starting January 2023. The winner will also receive one million Hilton Honors Points, five free night stays at any DoubleTree by Hilton hotel around the world, a $1,000 Delta Airlines gift card, and free DoubleTree by Hilton cookies for a year.
