Malta has entered the Junior Eurovision Song Contest eighteen times since debuting at the first contest in 2003. Maltese broadcaster PBS has been responsible for the country's participation, and organises a televised national final to select the country's entrant. Malta did not participate in 2011 and 2012, and selected the entrant internally instead of using a national final in 2013 and 2014.

Malta in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2022
Malta has won the contest twice: in 2013 when Gaia Cauchi won with the song "The Start", and again in 2015 when Destiny Chukunyere won with "Not My Soul" with 185 points. Following those wins, Malta hosted the contest in 2014 and 2016. Malta finished last three times; in 2005, 2019, and 2022.
On 16 July 2011, PBS announced its withdrawal from the ninth edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest; the first time Malta was absent. Malta did not participate in 2011 and 2012, and decided to return in 2013. In 2013, PBS opted for an internal selection since the broadcaster decided to return to the contest at a rather late stage (25 September 2013). PBS chose Gaia Cauchi as the 2013 Maltese representative.
Because Malta has multiple official languages, entrants can sing in Maltese and English.
