You're close, but you need to begin with one starting tag ("<header>"), and finish with one closing tag ("</header>"). The code above has an extra set of tags in between which is causing the issue. A header element is not allowed to contain another header.

Also, the outer set is enclosing more of the code than the instructions ask for.

And one other thing ā€” there appear to be a couple of stray closing "</section>" tags that are not associated with any starting tags.
