You are adding a label for the id "blue" not "color" which is the id of your select menu.

Hey Preston Skaggs! So what's the answer?

<label for="color">Shirt Color: </label>

This will add the label to the select menu with the id="color".

hey its said that "Bummer! You need to add a label for the 'color' select element."

<label for="color">Shirt Color: </label> should be BEFORE <select>.

<label for="color">Shirt Color: </label> should be BEFORE <select>.
