Hi Alonzo!

A couple of issues:

1) You don't need the optgroup tag

2) You needed to close the select tag

3) Connect the "for" in the label to the "id" in the select tag

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Forms</title>
  </head>
  <body>

    <form action="index.html" method="post">
      <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1>
      <label for="color">Shirt Color:</label><!-- Connect "for" -->
      <select id="color" name="shirt_color"><!-- to "id" here -->
        <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>
      <button type="submit">Place Order</button>
    </form>

  </body>
</html>

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!

Thank you my guy Peter, I fixed it and it helped!
