Josie represented Croatia at Junior Eurovision in 2014 HRT
Croatia won the very first Junior Eurovision Song Contest when it look place in Copenhagen in November 2003. Dino Jelusić lifted the trophy for his entry Ti si moja prva ljubav. Since then Croatia participated a further four times in the contest. Today we look back at Croatia's Junior Eurovision entries from over the years. 

Croatia got off to a strong start in Junior Eurovision and following the victory at the first ever contest in 2003, Nika Turković finished third with her song Hej mali the year after. Lorena Jelusić flew the flag for the country in 2005, finishing 12th with Rock Baby. 

Mateo Đido took Croatia back to the top ten in 2006 with the song Lea. Croatia withdrew from the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2007 but returned in 2014 when Josie represented her country with the song Game Over. Sadly for Croatia the song proved to be prophetic as it was game over for the country at Junior Eurovision. Whilst the Croatia has not participated since 2014, it remains eligible to return to Junior Eurovision one day.
