Slovenia made its debut at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2014 held in Marsa, Malta with Ula Ložar singing "Nisi Sam/Your light". Radiotelevizija Slovenija (RTVSLO) is Slovenia's representative broadcaster at the contest. In 2014, Slovenia's entry was picked by internal selection.[1] Mini EMA, a national selection, selected the Slovenian entry for Junior Eurovision 2015.[2]

On 24 May 2016, the Slovenian broadcaster RTVSLO announced that they would withdraw from the contest for the first time since their debut in the 2014 edition of the contest. The broadcaster explained that the decision was made based on changes to the contest rules by the EBU, although not specifying which rule changes influenced their decision to withdraw from the competition.[3] In May 2019, the broadcaster revealed that their reason for withdrawal was due to the cost of participation.[4] It is unknown if Slovenia will return to the contest in 2020 or later.
