Figured it out.

<form action="index.html" method="post">
      <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1>
      <label for="color">Shirt Color</label>
      <select id="color" name="shirt_color">       
        <option value="red">Red</option>
        <option value="yellow">yellow</option>
        <option value="red">Red</option>
        <option value="red">Red</option>
        <option value="red">Red</option>
        <option value="red">Red</option>
      </select>
      <button type="submit">Place Order</button>
    </form>

The button element is in fact what they're using for this challenge but you forgot to close the "select" element before the button.

Hey Antonio,

Very close but when using a button for a form you should use an "input" element instead of "button". Other than than your syntax is correct.

<input type="submit" value="Place Order">

I made an edit to my syntax.

that's it! lol I was so far to the correct answer.. ty for everything!

No prob. Syntax highlighting actually helped me to arrive at an answer for you. Is a small thing but helps a lot.
