The code is missing the "def" keyword to define the function, but that would still be not what the challenge asked for. The instructions say "Use the print() function to print the string "Hello, Treehouse"." There's nothing about putting it inside another function.

Also, the challenges are very picky about outputs. So the message needs to be exactly as given in the instructions, including spelling , punctuation, spacing and capitalization.
