Poland debuted in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in its inaugural contest in 2003 and had the unfortunate accolade of coming last with 3 points in that year’s contest as well as the following year’s contest in 2004. They withdrew in 2005 and didn’t make a return until 2016 and has since had a rather successful return since, coming in 11th place in 2016 with Olivia Wieczorek’s Nie zapomnij as well as being the first country to win 2 years in a row in 2018 with Roksana Wegiel’s Anyone I Want to Be and Viki Gabor’s Superhero.
