Your answer is correct, so my guess is that there was a typo or you had more than one word in a single box or maybe you had whitespace somewhere. Unfortunately, sometimes the challenges can be pretty strict about the answers they accept. So I would double check the things above and see if that goes through for you.

Let me know if you still have trouble getting your answer to pass, including screenshots if possible. That way if it's a bug it'll be easy to report it. Good luck, and happy coding!
