After finishing last in last years Junior Eurovision Song Contest it was reported in the Macedonian press that it was highly likely that FYR Macedonia would not take part in this years contest, however the call for volunteers for the contest may have confirmed their participation.
PBS asked for volunteers who could speak Italian, Swedish, Dutch, Russian, Ukranian, Greek, Macedonian, and English. The fact that Macedonian language is asked for points to the likelihood that Macedonia will continue to take part in Junior Eurovision. So far MRT has not made any comment about participating in this years contest or responded to our emails.
FYR Macedonia debuted in the contest in 2003 and has participated every year except 2012 when Macedonia took a year out.
