I would set up a simple "Open Scholar Foundation" with a website, where researchers can submit proofs that they are "open scholars" by showing that they make their papers, data, metadata, protocols, source code, lab notes, etc. openly available. These requests are briefly reviewed, and if approved, the applicant officially becomes an "Open Scholar" and is entitled to show a banner "Certified Open Scholar 2013" on his/her website, presentation slides, etc. Additionally, there could be annual competitions to elect the "Open Scholar of the Year".
