I am going by Wikipedia orders, some may be controversial.
Let me know if your favorite is not listed.
You can vote for more than one.

Hymenoptera =Wasps/hornets/bees
Phasmatodea =Stick insects/leaf insects
Blattodea = cockroaches
Homoptera = cicadas/treehoppers/leafhoppers/planthoppers/waterboatmen

From a collecting standpoint, Coleoptera and Orthoptera. From a pet standpoint, Blattodea (though I'm experimenting with orthops a bit).

Mantodea are my favourite. They're what brought me into insect keeping in the first place
