Hi Sat - You're very close. The name field should contain the name argument rather than being equal to it:

from models import Challenge

def create_challenge(name, language, steps=1):
    Challenge.create(name=name,
                     language=language,
                     steps=steps)

def search_challenges(name, language):
    return Challenge.select().where(Challenge.name.contains(name),Challenge.language==language)
