Hi Harvey,

It looks like you have accidentally created two form elements. Nested inside each other.

Also I think you have an extra </select> tag.

The <label> for Shirt Color should reference the id attribute and not the name attribute.

I think this is what you need to do to fix it.

    <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="purple">Purple</option>
        <option value="blue">Blue</option>
        <option value="green">Green</option>
        <option value="orange">Orange</option>
      </select>
    </form>
