The "select" element just before the button is missing an ending tag.

Once you fix that, the system might give you a better hint about what's left to do.

Hi Dakota,

To add to Steven's recommendations, you also need to add the type attribute to your button. For example <button type="submit">Place Order</button>.

Good job though and Happy coding!
