It's definitely not just for code contributions, but people who contribute more widely / globally / generally to the project and its ecosystem.
So people running Groovy conferences are indeed great candidates to become Stars / Champions :-)

+1up on Groovy Stars. 

Also please consider not just language contributions but those from community organizers like Søren Glasius && Shaun Jurgemeyer!

Hi Paul,

     “Groovy Champions” make people associate it with "Java Champions"
easily. As for "Groovy Stars", it is interesting but let me associate "Song
Stars" and "Kungfu Stars" easily... I wish other people would not associate
as I do...

      Similarly, many years ago some one suggested to name current "Grape"
as "Groovy Baby", the latter is interesting but not formal...

      To sum up, +1 to “Groovy Champions”.
