A law firm in Virginia is looking for people in your area who are considered heroes. Not so much the people in capes and tights, but those who do good in your community.

It's all for the law firm of Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen's tenth annual Hometown Heroes Award. It can be anyone from city leaders or police officers, to small business owners or advocates.

In the past year, the firm has celebrated 400 heroes statewide.

"We figure that there's enough people in these communities that we can honor, people who are doing good work for the community and also honor the values of this firm,” said Attorney Richard Armstrong.

The nomination period runs through April 30. People in central Virginia and the valley are eligible.
