The 17th edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest will be held in Arena Gliwice, one of the largest and most modern sports and entertainment venues in Poland. The show will take place on Sunday 24 November.

Roksana Wegiel achieved Poland's first victory with the song "Anyone I Want To Be". Poland appeared in the first ever Junior Eurovision Song contest back in 2003 and has taken part a total of five times, returning in 2016 after an 11-year break.

History of Junior Eurovision

Back in 2000 the Danish broadcaster Denmark's Radio (DR) held a song contest for children, and in 2002 the "MGP Nordic" was held together with Sweden and Norway. EBU picked up the idea for a song contest featuring children, and the first Junior Eurovision Song Contest was held in 2003 in Copenhagen, with 16 participating countries.

Back then the Junior Eurovision was based on entertainment for kids around Europe. On their level. It has later transformed itself to a copy of the "adult's Eurovision", lacking the soul and unique atmosphere it once had.

Junior Eurovision is only open for children aged 9 to 14.
