Hi Mary, the button element should be placed outside the select element but still be inside the form element. For example:

<!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>
  <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>
  <button type="submit">Place Order</button>
</form>

</body> </html>

Thanks, Antonio!

Got it to work.....👍🏻 Thanks for your help!
