Hello William!

There are a couple of things that are causing you to not pass this task. The first is that you need to capitalize the 'c' in .toUpperCase().

The other issues stem from what your finished string would be vs what it needs to be. This is actually a mistake that a lot of people make and it's completely understandable why! Yours would currently print as:


Instead, the finished string should actually be:


Notice that there should be a space after the colon and there should not be any punctuation at the end!

You're almost there. Keep up the good work!
