ATWEC Technologies Educates at Louisiana Head Start

Company Prepares Kiddie Voice™ Systems for Louisiana Schools

SHREVEPORT, LA--(Marketwire - Aug 11, 2011) - ATWEC Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ATWT), a US-based child safety company, today announced that it held a training seminar at the Louisiana Head Start Conference yesterday, where it presented its Kiddie Systems™ child reminder safety devices to key school administrators.

The Louisiana State Head Start Project is a comprehensive family-focused child development program that offers education, health, parent involvement and social services for low income families and their children. Head Start serves over 1,000,000 children with a total budget of $7 Billion dollars.

One of the primary topics of the Head Start conference is the July 1 passage of Bill 572, which requires child safety alarms on vehicles that transport children in Louisiana. The new law goes into effect immediately, and will be enforced as of May 1, 2012.

The Company's short-term marketing plan is to reach schools throughout the 64 parishes in Louisiana. By focusing on the retro-fit market and installing its systems on buses and vans that are already in use, the Company expects to contract with many school systems and day care centers with multiple locations.

Tyrone Dunn, Senior VP of Marketing of ATWEC Technologies, stated, "It's encouraging to see the increased level of concern and awareness regarding the extreme danger of leaving young children in vans and buses. Not only is it critical to protect the lives of children, but bus drivers and day care center owners could also have serious personal and possible criminal liability, which could even destroy their lives."

"We have received an incredible reception in Louisiana and connected with some great people who are now beginning to see the benefits of the Kiddie Voice™ system. We're well on our way, and looking forward to the challenge," said Dunn.
