How is this not working?

The code I put in is not being accepted. "Bummer! Try again!"

breaks.py
def loopy(items):
    for item in items:
        print(item)
    if item == "STOP":
        break

Right code, wrong place.

To be able to stop the loop, your test and break need to be inside the loop (indented more). Also, if you want to prevent the word STOP itself from being printed, the test needs to be done before the print.
