I don’t see anything wrong.
Does the widget area show up on your widgets page? If not, have you added it to your functions file with the other widgets? You don’t have to post the entire functions file, but if you do have it there, and the widget area is showing, try reloading your widgets page and then re-add content to see if it works then.
